The competition will consist of two rounds.
1st Round - You'll be evaluated by executives from Deliveroo to shortlist the top five candidates.
2nd Round - The five finalists will have the chance to pitch their business ideas to an expanded panel of judges that includes experienced food entrepreneurs in Singapore.
