We are open to the output being in any format (Word, PPT, Excel) as long as all the information requested is represented.
As a sample here follows a possible outline for an output on power point: - objective - brief description of the sources and process you used to capture the information - Overview of sub-segments (summary of your research, i.e. chart of proposed sub-segments, with their application, growth etc...) - Overview of targets (summary of best possible targets listed in order from best to worst, i.e. their revenue, EBITDA, location, ownership, and reason for recommendation) - individual analysis of each sub-segment (listed in overview sub-segment slide) - overview of sub-segemnt (description, application, etc...) - outlook of sub-segment (growth) - key players in the sub-segment - proposed targets for sub-segment - repeat for all sub-segments - appendix (any additional information you found that you think would be helpful)
There is no need to have detailed financial information for all the potentially attractive companies you identify.
We were able to work with HeroX to draft challenge guidelines, promote the challenge to a targeted audience of interested parties, and ultimately draw a crowd of innovators from across the globe to submit proposals to address our challenge. We were quite satisfied with the number and diversity of both individuals and proposals that the challenge drew.
