Below we offer some guidance on what we are seeking in submitted ideas:

Boldness

Simply put, we are looking for ideas that will have a bold impact in Delaware. From earlier, Reinventing Delaware Dinners, we note some confusion about whether proposals are sought for public or private sector innovation. The short answer is "both", but we add that proposals for new public sector initiatives need to be focused on nurturing private sector growth and prosperity. 

Innovation

Next, we value novelty. The dinners are rare events which gather bright minds. We don't want to use that precious time discussing the obvious; it is the innovative ideas that we seek.

Viability

Furthermore, we seek ideas that one imagines might be doable. Following the dinner, the Foundation supports a few of the winning ideas for the next year as they are brought to life. While we don't want to dull the enthusiasm of our dreamers, we hope to develop a routine in which great ideas become reality.

Sustainability

Finally, we encourage ideas that are likely to be sustainable upon completion of engagement between the Pete du Pont Freedom Foundation and the Idea Winners from Reinventing Delaware.
