Pitching Process


At the culmination of the program a Presentation Night is held where you will be expected to do a pitch presentation. To help with your presentation and to facilitate the judging you will need to provide 4 documents prior to presentation night: 

•      MC Introduction—this will give the Judging Panel context for your presentation.

•      Company profile— please ensure that this is no longer than 1 page

•      Completed business model Canvas

•      Slide deck—we recommend that the maximum number of slides is 6

It is important that these documents are completed and returned promptly so that they can be distributed to the Judging Panel.

The format for the evening will be:

5 minute Pitch & 5 minute Q&A with a 1 minute changeover.
