The grand jury of the contest consisted of business experts, business angels and investors who are often making decisions on investments on potentially successful projects that they later support.
Out of 104 contestant projects, 3DAudioSense made it up to the half final - best 8, which entitled the team to present the project at a stand at Grand Finale Gala on 4th March 2014 in Warsaw.
The competition itself started in September 2013 and was divided into several stages which included both preparation/practice and evaluation sessions. The last evaluation was done based on presentation made in front of Grand Jury, which as a result made a decision to honor 3DAudioSesne with an award.
During the Grand Finale Gala the team had a chance to present project's details to business angels, investors and technical people. The project got very positive reception, which lead to further discussions about potential funding from VCs.
Many valuable guests gave their opinions and advices on how to improve the project from the business perspective. It has been a valuable lesson for the team that is even more certain about project's value from both technical and business standpoints.
