Q&A

Q: What kind of ideas and products fit this event?

A: Anything Neurotech related! VR, Bio-feedback CBT therapy service? Sure. Brain-computer interface control of warehouse robots? Definitely! A bracelet that changes color based on your cortisol levels? Not so much. Ice cream flavor named “Brain-Freeze”. No. Delicious, but no.

 

Q: How futuristic can I make my idea?
A: Your idea can be as wild as you like. However, it’s important you show it is feasible given certain assumptions and that you can explain those assumptions. It’s up to you to make sure the technical part of your idea is hypothetically possible (doesn’t break physics) and at least somewhat probable (in line with directions in current research) 

 

Q: Do I have to have experience in scientific research or entrepreneurship?

A: Experience is useful but never a precondition! You should have an academic or similar  background, and adeep interest in neuroscience and entrepreneurship. Either way, if you think you’ll have fun and succeed you’re probably right! Apply and see.

Q: What is the registration fee?

We believe in open science.
Participation is free.

Q: Do we have to work in English?

Teams are free to choose the language they work in (staff & mentors are fluent in both English and Hebrew). 

Semi-final and final presentation slides and pitches must be in English.

We would love to see your ideas become a reality in the future. However, this event is above all intended to inspire creativity and provide an opportunity to gain experience and network. Things you share with others in this event are public and will not remain confidential. In addition, the participation is as a team which may include, in addition to you, other students from various academic institutions and various majors. As a team, you may also be accompanied by professional mentors. New works or ideas may be created as part of such a team which members and mentors may be subject to different IP restrictions. Therefore, in order to maintain your IP rights, please consider carefully what you share with others, or otherwise bring with you and/or present in this event, especially an idea you are actively working on or is too similar to an idea you’d prefer to pursue individually at a later time and we highly recommend you consult with a legal advisor before doing so. The Neuro-Pitch 2027 event is your chance to think of and pitch a future fantasy more than a near reality.
