Pitching Guidance 

It is simple - pitch your business idea.

  • There is a strict 90 second time limit for each pitch 
  • No slides allowed, you can use one prop if you wish 
  • The order of pitches will be chosen at random 
  • This is an optional activity with pride as the prize 

As this pitch will be in front of an audience do not share any intellectual property (eg. The specific workings of the business (the secret sauce) but the idea and the good stuff about your idea can be shared)– if you need guidance on this please contact us.
