  • What is your idea? Is it a product, service, or experience? 
  • How is it unique? 
  • Who is your customer and how do you reach them? 
  • Tell us about you: How does your background support the idea? 
  • What are the alternatives, and how is your idea better? 
  • How much does it cost to make? How much would you sell it for?
