  • Disruptive potential (25%): does the company have the potential to have a significant impact on an existing market, or to create an entirely new category? Are they well-positioned to take advantage of the market opportunity, and do they appear to have a cogent strategy to do so?

  • Exciting growth (25%): is the company showing impressive growth potential, whether in terms of customer adoption, revenue, or major accounts/deployments?
