You be the judge

Want to help make someone’s dream come true? Volunteer to be a 43North judge!

43North is looking for successful entrepreneurs willing to volunteer their time, knowledge, and expertise to help shape the world’s largest business plan competition, and select the $5 million worth of winners. Experts from all business subject matters and industries- especially advanced manufacturing, bio tech, clean tech, green tech, high tech, and med tech – are encouraged to apply.

Judges are needed for the competition’s first two rounds:

Round 1 (June 1-14, 2014) – Judges will read and rate the executive summaries of 10 applications online. Each batch of 10 applications takes approximately 1-2 hours for extensive review.

Round 2 (September 2-20, 2014) – Judges will read, rate and comment on business plans online, taking 1-2 hours each. From there, they will sit in on virtual pitch sessions with applicants.

43North judges must be experienced business men and women from entrepreneurs and investors, to lawyers and accountants, and across all areas of business. Specifically, senior executives with domain experience from established enterprises, partners at VC firms, angel investors, and technology experts are also encouraged to apply. Or, do you simply have a knack for startups and businesses? We hope that you apply, as well.
