What is required of the finalists?

The eight competition finalists for each competition will be required to make a six minute presentation on their business idea to a judging panel. Thirty – sixty seconds is allowed for the elevator pitch, and the remaining time is for the presentation. A visual component such as a PowerPoint, storyboard, handout, demonstration or other visual component of the finalist’s choice is required. Finalists will also give their elevator pitch during the Awards Ceremony. Special category winners will also give an elevator pitch for their idea.  All finalists and special categories winners will be provided detailed instructions once they are confirmed, and they will also be invited to a virtual orientation one week prior to the event.  Most of all we want you to have fun and learn about entrepreneurship!
