Council Feedback: Thank you for submitting your proposal. Unfortunately, it was not approved in its current state. Here are some items and feedback to consider:
  • Nature of Idea: The proposal suggests a startup model, which isn't suitable for an experimental initiative we're targeting.
  • Refinement Needed: The proposal requires further refinement and clarity.
  • Royalties and Revenue: The details on royalties are vague, and the proposed revenue share might not be lucrative for the Inkubator.
  • Business Basics: There's ambiguity about whether this is an entirely new product/service or a funding request for a unique collection.
  • Demand Verification: There's no concrete evidence presented, such as preorders, to validate demand for the idea.
  • Budget Clarity: The current spending plan lacks essential details which are crucial for our assessment.

We hope this feedback helps you understand our perspective. If there are adjustments or further clarifications, we're here to review them.

We encourage you to refine your proposal based on the feedback and consider resubmitting in the future.
