Georgia Tech Starter is the first of its kind to apply a mandatory peer review process for applicants. Peer Review is the evaluation of work by subject matter experts in the same discipline, and constitutes part of the regulation that the scientific processes relies on to maintain high standards.
Only after experts in the same field as the project have given the proposal their stamp of approval, do we give the project the opportunity to be funded on Georgia Tech Starter. Through peer review, they make sure that every project has the potential to succeed before it even hits the website. Supporters can have confidence that the outcomes proposed by these scientists and engineers are attainable with the funding goals they set because they wouldn't post them if the Georgia Tech experts didn't also think they would be successful.
