Join the Judges

We are currently looking for judges to join our international panel of judges. Judges are expected to mark three to four business plans and videos each, these will be available to mark mid-March, completed marking is to be returned by mid- April. There is usually a virtual meeting, at a time and date mutually convenient to all judges, to confer and agree marking, this is held towards the end of April. The virtual final will be held mid-May, provisionally 15 May, 15:00 hours, central european summer time (CEST), judges are welcome to attend but this is not compulsory.

Regretably, we cannot accept expressions of interest from members who have a team participating in the competition. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Vera Demaiter,¬†

Please complete this form to register your interest in joining the panel. We appreciate your interest.

Thank you for your expression of interest in judging submissions for the NIBS Business Plan Competition 2024. We estimate that each judge will receive up to 7 Business Plans to judge.

A judges meeting is usually convened at the beginning of April to agree on the student finalists. In a change to previous years we will have a live final before the NIBS Conference, this will be a dedicated event for Q&A of students, aswell as the all important awards ceremony, every effort will be made to accommodate all judges timezones.
