7. Evidence of Commercial Success or Demonstrated Market Potential:
'Commercial Success': – have you developed a new and innovative product or service, and then sold it recently to a launch customer? If so, then you meet this criterion.
'Demonstrated Market Potential': You may have a product or service ready for the market that hasn’t yet achieved a sale; newness of the innovation is not a problem if you satisfy the other two criteria, have a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of around 7 or, ideally, 8 (System Qualified Through Test and Demonstration) and can show a reasoned plan, based on a quantified estimate of market demand and a well thought-out roadmap to bring your innovation to market.

9. Evidence of Originality and Innovation:
Measures of originality and innovation are simple: if nobody has thought of it before, then it’s original. It’s innovative if it allows the user to change and improve his or her processes and procedures and achieve a superior outcome – the greater the change, the better the outcome, the greater the impact of the innovation.
