The advancing companies will give a live, in-person two-minute pitch about their innovative technology including why it is disruptive and how it solves a real-world problem in round two of the competition. After all four companies in a category have presented, event attendees will vote via text message for their favorite company from that category and the top two companies from each category will move to the final round.

The final round is a head-to-head competition between the remaining two companies in each category. A panel of experts will ask questions of the two companies, who will each have one minute per question to respond. Each head-to-head session will last a total of 10 minutes. The winner in each category will then be decided by the expert panel and announced during the closing reception.
