Confidentiality and Secrecy

ABLE & DBT considers all submitted concepts, executive summaries and full business plans as confidential and treats all team matters accordingly.

However, ABLE or DBT cannot guarantee complete confidentiality for proprietary matters.

Therefore, we strongly recommend any team with concerns regarding intellectual property, copyright or patent confidentiality to contact a competent legal counsel for advice on protection.

ABLE or DBT is not responsible for any proprietary information and/or intellectual property included in a submitted concept, executive summary or full business plan. Ultimately, protection of sensitive material is the sole responsibility of the team participating in the competition.
