What makes something "partially-vetted"? Any idea where work has already started. If you have a prototype, a website, customers, users, or have received funding or awards in the past, your idea is partially-vetted.
Knowing a bit more helps us recruit the right people, organizations and/or resources out to GiveBackHack and as a heads up, you need to get this idea approved before pitching at the event.
Some ideas will be a bit too far along in the entrepreneurial process and won’t be appropriate for GiveBackHack. If that’s the case, we’ll do our best to point you in the right direction (like a local accelerator or funding path) and we'll even make introductions if we can!
You can learn more about specifics here: http://givebackhack.com/stories/making-an-even-better-launchpad/
The best ideas are rooted in the problem they solve. What problem are you attacking? Is there any data around it?
What are the specifics of the idea? How is your solution going to ease the burden or remove the problem all together?
Why is your solution uniquely positioned to solve the problem?
What skills do you bring to the table (are you an expert in X, have you volunteered and seen the problem firsthand, are you a software developer, seasoned entrepreneur, are you just particularly, relentlessly passionate about this, or are you just excited to make the solution happen?
Where are the gaps? What people do you need to make it happen? Are certain skill sets (design, development, user experience, monetization strategy, etc.) or people with experience or connections in certain spaces valuable?
What is needed in order to bring this solution to market in a sustainable way?
