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 their team did NOT make it 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.
