Changes in 2020:
- Negotiations are back! By popular demand, we are returning to the pre-2019 format with the top 2 teams negotiating with their chosen startup after the partner meetings followed by 3 minutes of Q&A from judges.
- “No repeat” rule relaxed. Starting in 2020, students MAY repeat the competition at the regional level as long as they did NOT travel to national or global finals in Chapel Hill.
- Teams may bring a Team Shadow and/or a Judge Shadow to observe the event and provide feedback. More info.
