4. Play-off Round and Final Round evaluation will be 100% based on overall Business Viability as expressed in the submitted Written Business Plan, Formal Presentation, Question & Answer, and Venture Exhibit.

A team of judges will scrutinize all submitted Summary Business Plans and accompanying Video Pitches to select 19 Semi-Finalist teams and 6 Thailand Track teams for their participation in Bangkok.

The selected teams and their faculty advisors will be individually notified via email on Thursday, December 20, 2018. Such teams and their faculty advisors must confirm their Intention of Participation via return email to bbc@sasin.edu within Monday, December 24, 2018, and submit their full Written Business Plan in PDF format to bbc@sasin.edu within Friday, February 1, 2019, 23.59 hrs. (Bangkok time).

Should any of the selected teams relinquish their right to participate further in the competition (through not confirming their Intention of Participation within the deadline, or otherwise), the organizer reserves the right to invite the next best first round team(s) to fill up the vacancy. A public announcement and draw of the selected teams will be made by Monday, February 11, 2019. If, after this public announcement and draw, any of the 19 Semi-Final Round teams that have already confirmed their Intention of Participation relinquish their right to participate further in the competition (through not submitting their full Written Business Plan within the deadline, or otherwise), the organizer reserves the right to invite the next best First Round team(s) to fill up the vacancy and give such team(s) until Wednesday, February 8, 2019, or at least 5 days from the time such teams are notified, to submit their full Written Business Plan.

The organizers reserve the right to refuse participation in next year's competition from institutions whose teams have confirmed their Intention of Participation but fail to participate further in the competition in Bangkok. Under such eventuality, the highest authority governing the concerned institutions (i.e. Rector/President of the University, Dean of the Faculty, etc.) will be formally informed in writing.

Each panel of experienced investors, entrepreneurs and business professionals of the Sasin Alumni Association Network (SAA Network) shall provide frank verbal and written feedback to the Semi-Finalist teams with regards to their 60-Second Pitches and Formal Presentations.

4. Semi-Final Round: Morning session of Friday, February 22, 2019. 4 best-ranking teams from the First Round, with no announcement, will be randomly separated into four different groups (A, B, C and D). Thereafter, all remaining teams will be randomly placed to make 4 teams for each group. The winner of each group will immediately proceed to the Final Round.

Second ranked teams from Semi-final Round’s groups A and C and third ranked teams from groups B and D will combine into a group of four to compete for a seat in the Final Round.

After having reviewed all 20 semi-finalist teams’ written business plans and venture exhibits, and observed the teams’ Semi-final Round presentations, 4 teams are chosen by the Sustainability Award Committee to compete for H.R.H.
