But What About Sheffield?

Good question! We're also embracing the global Global theme and will be introducing specific judging criteria and a special prize track for world-beating, global ideas. As well as the usual criteria of validation, execution, business model, and design, teams will be rewarded for thinking big and solving worldwide problems with simple, scalable solutions.

If you haven't got your ticket yet, there's still time. Check out our judges and mentors (including a Global Business Evangelist for Microsoft), and register now before it's too late.
