HOW TO USE:  to add another criteria - copy of of the existing fields below. In the new field update the Calculation within Options to call the screening function. There are two available screening functions that can be called with the following syntax: 
     where bin is a binary variable field. Use option value = 1 for pass, 0 for fail. 
     "tfa_xxxx" is the id of the checkbox Choice from the Criteria Fall Status field below. Click 'Choices' to find it.
     where bin is a binary variable field. use "1" if there is no binary component for pass/fail.
     val is the variable to be compared. Can be from an input field or assigned value from a radio/checkbox
     operator specifies how to compare (ex: "=", "!=", ">", ">=", "<","<=")
     thr is the variable of the threshold value to compare to
     "tfa_xxxx" is the id of the checkbox Choice from the Criteria Fall Status field below. Click 'Choices' to find it.

Both functions will set the specified Criteria Fail Status checkbox and return a constructed message below with variable threshold and either a red x or green check as appropriate. 

The following field concatenates all the js constructed criteria messages above

Screenout Logic
HOW TO USE:  to add another criteria - just add a new choice to the list with the criteria number as the prefix. (ex: "#criteria7#" ). Under Options, assign a value to the new option according to the following: 
     0 = does not cause application to fail, SE Pipeline Status = "Invite to Apply" 
     1 =  causes application to fail, SE Pipeline Status = "Screenout - Stage (Re-Invite)"
     99 = causes application to fail, SE Pipeline Status = "Screenout - Impact/Focus'

HOW TO USE:  to add another criteria - copy one from the list below then update the HTML id to match the checkbox list above (ex:  id="criteria7" ). Any variable thresholds should be referenced as 'XYZ' which will be replaced by the variable value by the js message builder.
 Improve lives for those in poverty:
Miller Center exists to accelerate entrepreneurship to end global poverty and protect the planet. We believe that social entrepreneurship is leading the way in transforming markets for good and ultimately propelling us to end poverty. This is the core of our mission and we support social enterprises that share this purpose.

 Operational for at least XYZ months: 
Enterprises who have been operating for less time are generally too early for Miller Center programs.

 At least $XYZ in earned revenue (USD): 
Our programs are best suited for enterprises that have an established business model and impact model. Enterprises with little earned revenue have not yet demonstrated strong product-market fit or shown enough traction with their customers, payors, or recipients.

 At least XYZ full-time paid employees: 
Our programs can be demanding and it may be difficult for solo founders or very small teams to be fully engaged and run your enterprise without the support of other team members. We look for strong teams that bring complementary skills and perspectives to ensure you get the full benefit of our support.

 Cash runway of at least XYZ months: 
Organizations without sufficient cash are often more focused on fundraising to keep the business operating than on participating fully in the program. While Miller Center programs are designed to prepare social enterprises for investment, participants are unlikely to fully benefit from the program if they are in financial distress and focused on the enterprises short-term survival.

 Focused on Women’s Economic Empowerment and/or Climate Resilience
Miller Center supports enterprises that are committed to women’s economic empowerment, climate resilience, or the intersection of both. Neither of these focus areas were indicated in your response.
