What are BIRD’s criteria for partnerships?

The two companies need to show their ability to bring the product to market, and therefore one partner should demonstrate proven marketing and sales ability.

For example, the project partners could include one larger company and one smaller company.
Preferred size of the partners, in $ terms, is estimated on a case by case basis, taking into consideration the size and nature of the relevant market, competition in the industry, and significant market-presence of at least one of the two partners.
