> The goal of Stage 2 of the Challenges is to turn your design concept into

> network based on your design could be. This might mean a piece of hardware
> (for example, a single network node that runs your software), an MVP (minimum
> viable product) version of your solution or even a small-scale test
> network that users can connect to. Judges will be looking for a prototype
> that can demonstrate things like network speed, range and power
> consumption; please see the application guide for a detailed list of

> In July, a select number of Stage 2 finalists will be invited to a “demo
> day” showcase in Mountain View, CA on August 14th, where they will demo
> their working prototypes for judges. Finalists will be asked to give a
> short presentation that identifies the problem they are trying to solve,
> the intended users of their solution and the capabilities of their
> prototype. More details on the demo day event will be provided this summer.
> Congratulations on being selected to move on to Stage 2 of the Challenges!
> We look forward to reviewing your working prototype this summer. If you
