iOD Virtual Desk operation

Persons or entities with an idea can contact the IOD Virtual Desk via the secured and private MuniSkies IOD webpage or per e-mail, indicating idea and application domain.
This sets in motion a sequence of actions as follows:
• After an initial assessment the idea (submitter) gets an invitation to send a more complete description under non-disclosure
• After a first level assessment of the idea a preliminary evaluation of the idea on technical merits and its market opportunities is given
• Depending on this assessment and the decision by the submitter, a virtual or physical meeting can be arranged to provide the next evaluation step, indicative business plan, advice and indication of possible next steps
