Technology evaluation has become a critical part of technology investment, and accurate evaluation can lead more funds to the companies that have innovative technology. However, existing processes have a weakness in that it considers only accepted applicants at the application stage. We analyse the effectiveness of technology evaluation model that encompasses both accepted and rejected applicants and compare its performance with the original accept-only model. Also, we include the analysis of reject inference technique, bivariate probit model, in order to see if the reject inference technique is of use against the accept-only model. The results show that sample selection bias of the accept-only model exists and the reject inference technique improves the accept-only model. However, the reject inference technique does not completely resolve the problem of sample selection bias.
