Judging Criteria

Let’s be honest, y’all can do better than Powerpoints. Which is why we rock with live DEMOS only! No exceptions. To win HackNEU 2017 hackathon, you will have to demo your product for at least 30 seconds, but no more than 4 minutes. Don’t worry if your project is still not 100% perfected. Projects will be judged based on the following criteria:

How original is this solution?
How impactful will this solution be for its target audience?
Is your project scalable?
How well designed is this solution, from front end to UI/UX?
How well executed is this solution from start to finish?

Additional points for

Do you have a business and marketing model for the project?
Is your project creating a social impact?
