Demonstration that the applicant team and its partners have the necessary depth and breadth of talent, experience and leadership in order to execute their project.
|Potential for Scale|
Extent to which the proposed project objectives and interim milestones are appropriate, feasible and technically sound within the budget and time allocated for catalyzing scale and sustainability. Reviewers will look for partnerships that contribute expertise relevant to the scale and sustainability of the idea. Co-funding and/or matched funding frompartners is required, as this demonstrates a key stake in project success by project partners, as well as demand for the solution. Matching funds should be‘new cash’. Where cash is not possible, and where strong smart partners are present such as government or corporate partners matching through in-kind contributions will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Though it is preferred, secured commitment of matched funds may not be required at theproposal stage. Funding committed up to one year prior to submission of theapplicant may be considered for match funding.
