In 2018 we had 50+ applicants for the Lightning Lab GovTech programme. The final projects were decided by: 1. The size of the potential impact created by a solution to the problem that is being addressed through the project. 2. The urgency of the problem. Is "the market" crying out for a solution?3. Does the project have a possible funding stream post programme if it is successful?4. Does the project have an executive sponsor("decision maker") from within the public sector who can support it?
The quality of your application and supporting evidence will be critical to the success of the application.
