Online Judging

Why be an online judge?

Serving as an online judge for Fish 2.0 is an ideal way for you, as an investor, to learn about businesses in the seafood sector while sharing your expertise and feedback to help them succeed.

All judging is done online, through our password-protected system. Your comments will be shared anonymously with participants.

The more businesses you judge, the more you will learn about the sector and its opportunities.

What is involved?

Online judges must have investment or relevant business experience.

  • Scoring is done online, and criteria are provided by Fish 2.0.
  • You will be able to score entries at any time during an 10-day scoring period for the track you are judging.
  • Each entry requires about 30-40 minutes to review and score online — about the same time it takes to conduct initial screening of a new deal.
  • Each judge must commit to scoring 3-4 entries.
