Welcome back to another year of
There’s never been a better time for great ideas
No idea is too big or too small. The only mandatory is that the MVP (minimum viable product) of the idea is achievable within the first six months (a phased roll-out is acceptable).
Download the brief from the homepage for some helpful information to sense-check your idea.
Also, make sure you review the T&C's before signing up.
You can only submit an idea that 100% belongs to you and/or your team. You can’t enter an idea that's already in its mature phase to get further venture funding.
We recommend entering as a team (maximum three people) as it will benefit you if you make it to Pitch Night. But of course, you’re welcome to enter solo if you think you have what it takes.
There will be a Brainbox Cam set up in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland during selected dates in October. Each individual/team has 90 seconds to film their submission with the videos being uploaded directly to the Brainbox website.
If you can't make it, you can simply film your submission on your phone and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9am AEST, Monday 30 October.
All ideas will be reviewed by the DAN Innovation Council and selected on the following judging criteria:

Once the top eight are announced, each team will be allocated a mentor from the council. We’ll run a Brainbox Bootcamp where you’ll work with a mentor to flesh out your idea and unlock its full potential. Then it’s time to present your idea to the judges on Pitch Night in early 2018.
Each team will be briefed on what’s required for Pitch Night once the shortlist is announced.
