Even though roiquant is our product’s brand name, we also use it to identify our company’s trade name (we’re also the Organizer of the virtual competition).

Essentially, roiquant is a business decision support system helping founders build competitive edge, so they can make data-informed decisions to innovate and generate high return on investment.

In empowering founders to innovate, roiquant’s data-centric product offering is purposefully designed and powered by business failures data, company performance data, capital markets data, historical data, commercial strategies, risk factors, investors database, business tools, simulators, and more, to help founders build valuable and successful businesses.

This is why it is a mandatory requirement for all participants to create a new roiquant account because all of our virtual startup competitions are powered by our roiquant solutions.

If you’re uncomfortable with the requirement, we can understand, but please read the rules before you decide not to register.
