Mont Rose Angel 2021/22

MRC Angel Business Competition (2021/22)

This year’s competition will be divided into 2 stages:

1st Stage – MRC Exhibition

You will have to come in early to set up your exhibition table and presentation material. Judges will walk around and ask you set questions to do with the feasibility of your business that you will have to answer.

Judges will score your idea or business depending on your idea and how well you answered questions to do with your business.

Your idea doesn’t have to be polished as such at this stage in the competition but it’s a good idea to bring something visual so judges can get an essence of what your idea represents.

This could take anywhere from 5 – 15 minutes depending on how much the judges inquire and how well you answer. Judges will come to a decision about who they wish to bring forward in the competition.

2nd Stage – MRC Angel Final Competition

After receiving adequate training and advice on these workshops, on the final competition day – 17th May 2022, you will be asked to give a business presentation in which you should take into account finances, location, marketing strategy, etc.

You will be given a 10 minute slot to present. Judges will then be able to ask or comment as they see fit.

You will again be scored against a judging criteria which will this time take into account what you might have learnt in the workshops that were offered to you.

Once every participant has had their fair share of time, judges will be able to gather to discuss their scoring. The winner of MRC Angel Competition 2021 – 2022 will be announced shortly after.

The Judges

This year’s judging panel will be made up of in-house members of MRC business department as well as external business experts and specialists.

Judgement will be based on the following criteria:

  • The viability of the business or business idea / business objectives
  • Business strategizing
  • Operational factors
  • Market and competition analysis
  • Presentation of ideas
  • The projected financials / costing and pricing

Judging will be done on a 1 – 5 scale where 1 is very poor and 5 is very good.

The above will be put forward in set questions to each contestant, as decided by judges prior to competition days.
