Team

Your team must consist of two or three students or recent graduates (graduated less than three years ago).

Ideally, you should try to create a team of people with different backgrounds and expertise. This will give you a broader skill set and help to encourage new ideas. Innovation often comes from the meeting of different skills and talents.

Alternatively, you can join an existing, incomplete team, share your knowledge with the other member(s) and improve your own chances of winning. You can also talk to other people on the website via video-conference or chat, so geography is no obstacle!
