The minimum cost of a project is $9,000 CAD. Minimum $5,000 CAD in prize money, $3,000 posting fee, 20% commission on prize money. The prize money can be increased for more complex projects or to attract more senior practitioners. Founders from underrepresented groups in tech are eligible to have the posting and commision fee waived determined on a case by case basis.
We work with you to set up multiple modules (each would be 4 weeks long) with minimum success definition for each. Teams that meet those criteria qualify for next modules. You can cap this off with a longer module at the end where the best team can work for you for a longer time period on a part time basis.
All submissions will include:
Additional deliverables per module:
The sponsoring company will own the final IP. The process is set up as a competition and you will get first right of refusal to the end-to-end solutions provided by the winning team in return for the prize money. (already reflected in the sponsor package price list)
Only any info that you agree to. As part of our contract, we will discuss what info can be shared publicly for marketing purposes. Any sensitive info needed will be only provided to participants after they agree to competition specific TOS including non-disclosure, confidentiality, and data privacy

If no teams meet that criteria (extremely unlikely), you don't pay anything. As part of our onboarding, we work together to align on a document including a (quantitative, as much as possible) minimum success criteria as well as a stretch goal. Only the teams that achieve the minimum success will qualify for prize money.
Ranking is determined by a 2 part voting system. Your company gets 50% of the votes and we provide an expert panel for the other 50%. During onboarding we share the parameters we will be looking at and at this time you can document any additional parameters important to you.
There is no fee for developers to participate. However, they will submit a "project proposal" as proof of work, in order to ensure high quality participations only.
