The Judging Process
Each of the five finalists within the five categories have two minutes to present their entry. After each presentation, the emcee and the category judges have seven minutes to provide constructive criticism to assist these finalists in their business planning, technology development, sales, and marketing. Winners are chosen in each category and announced at the V2Venture Awards Ceremony at the end of the day. Click here to view the list of 2014 winners.
