Then, 10x goes to work.
10x evaluates ideas and funds those with the most promise.
A few times a year, 10x collects all the ideas and evaluates them for funding. The most promising ideas proceed to Phase 1.
Your idea will be evaluated based on the following 3 criteria, each given equal weight:
Clarity. Does the idea demonstrate an understanding of a real problem and communicate it clearly?
Alignment. Does the idea help develop new, good-for-government technology?
Impact. Does solving this problem have an important effect on the federal government or the public?
If selected, 10x starts its funding small — only magnifying its investment as an idea develops, step-by-step, into a sustainable project. This iterative approach, based on modern technology and investment practices, ensures that the best ideas turn into the best government products and services — funded with fewer taxpayer dollars.
10x projects are managed and staffed by project teams within the Technology Transformation Service department of the General Services Administration.
