In Danish Tech Challenge we use external juries to help select the companies participating in the program, and to decide who wins the competition. It is important that these juries are composed in the most appropriate and impartial manner. This is why, we work with numerous criteria for the selection of participants in our juries.
The intention of these guidelines is to ensure that we always have the most competent jury members, and that they are completely impartial in relation to the companies, which they will be assessing.
Therefore, when selecting a new jury, the below listed principles apply:
- All juries are composed with competencies and diversity in mind.
- A jury member cannot be on the same jury more than three times.
- A jury member may not have any interest in the companies, which they will be assessing, either as a mentor, advisor, board member, investor or any other close relation personal and professional.
- Jury members may not invest in the companies, which they will be assessing, for a period of six months after the assessment.
- Jury members may not take pictures or otherwise publish anything about the companies, which they will be assessing, or their participation in the program.
Our process of assembling a new jury is as follows:
- Based on competencies and diversity a database of potential jury members is created.
- A shortlist of relevant candidates for a specific jury is composed from a database based on competencies and diversity.
- Candidates on the shortlist are checked for any relation to the companies in question.
- The final list of candidates is generated.
- Selection of and contract with each jury member.
