You are hereby invited to participate in The Orbies, winter 2019 edition, February 21st at 16.30. The Orbies is a celebration of student creativity and technical skills in projects made in the past semester. Students will get a chance to show off their projects and win the prestigious Orbie Award. Students can present their projects in the form of a pitch, a demo or a video – or a combination of two, or even all three to increase chances of winning.
The projects will be evaluated on the night by a high-profile panel of judges from industry and academia who will award Orbie statuettes in the categories Best Pitch, Best Demo, Best Video, Best Startup Potential and Best Overall Project. Furthermore, there’s the Audience award and an Orbie statuette will also be awarded to an ORBIT Lab Community Contributor – someone who helped accelerate ORBIT Lab during the past semester.
