About commercialization plan submission

Hi, I am wondering whether there is a document to explain more about the commercialization plan, especially answers to the following questions

1. To where do we submit the plan? I did not find an entry for the submission on the Herox website.

2. What are all key elements expected to be included in the plan?

3. Any format requirements that we need to stick with, e.g., page length, word/character limit?

Hi Xianglei! Thank you for your question.

You will submit the Commercialization Plan via a HeroX submission forum which will be made available to eligible registered competitors next week.

The all commercialization plan requirements are detailed in the official rules document, which can be found here: (starting on page 12, Section 5 - What to Submit)

Please note that the Prize Administration team is in the process of updating the rules to allow teams to focus their commercialization plan responses on either product-to-market commercialization or an accelerated market adoption strategy, regardless of if they are currently providing forecast services commercially or not.
