Competitors will present in front of a live audience, with a 10-minute pitch and 10-minute question and answer period. Competitors will be scored based both on their pitch and their required Technical Submission and will be evaluated based on technical innovation, technical feasibility, market feasibility, and the proposed research and development plan. The total calculated score—which includes the INCUBATE Stage Technical Narrative, and the PITCH CONTEST evaluation—can be found in Section 5. The PITCH CONTEST will be scored by a panel of reviewers selected by WPTO and Reclamation. The Prize Administrator, in consultation with WPTO and Reclamation, will select the contest winners. The winners of this stage will receive cash and in-kind voucher support for use through September 30, 2021.
