The best way to get your idea to stand out is to carefully think out and clearly demonstrate your thoughts regarding these areas in your proposal.

What problem does your technology solve, and why is your approach unique and defensible? What fundamental advance does your technology demonstrate? What are the technical barriers to entry based upon your proposal that will work in your favor?
What is the size of the market for your technology? Who are your competitors? How well funded are your competitors? What do your current customers say appeals to them and why?
How much will it require to get you to the major milestones in the evolution of your proposal? What milestones can a future financing be based upon by executing to your targeted plan? Our model focuses on early stage investing, primarily Series A.
