Does your team miss any skills that would improve your project or would contribute to making it more successful?
If we find a person that has the required skills, would you open to collaborating with that person? (of course, you will still have the chance to say no).
Have you already worked on your idea?
Please outline the 4 most important milestones that you and your team plan to implement during the funding period. You can refer to supplementary documentation that you can upload in the attachment section.
Have you already thought about how you or others could continue improving your project after the end of the funding period? (Project sustainability)
Have you already identified or even talked to your future users (your target group)?
What are your considerations regarding data privacy and data security? Which other risks have you considered? You might want to check OWASP's list of top ten privacy risks (see FAQ)
Here you can share any information that we should be aware of. You can refer to supplementary documentation that you can upload in the attachment section.
I agree to make the code publicly available (through, for instance, a public Github or Bitbucket repository) and to publish the software under one of the open source licenses which are recognised of the Free Software Foundation or the Open Source Initiative.
Can we mention your project idea on prototypefund.ch and in our publications even if you are not selected for funding?
To ensure that all projects are judged fairly, can you tell us if any members of the jury know you well or have been involved in your project? If so, who?
