Virtual Pitch Best Practices

  • Be Presentable: Just because you’re not pitching in-person doesn’t mean your pitch should look sloppy! Dress nicely and practice good grooming and hygiene to look your best for the judges
  • Have Visuals: A video of just you talking to a camera is boring! Be sure to share your screen to show off your pitchdeck to the judges. You may also choose to get creative and come up with other visual aides such as a whiteboard, props, etc.
  • Speak Clearly: Make sure that you are enunciating and pronouncing words clearly so that judges can understand what you’re saying through the computer.
  • Keep it Short: Your pitch should only be five minutes long! Any longer and we will just cut it off before it is finished.

Students will deliver a five-minute pitch followed by a three-minute Q&A session to a panel of judges. Students are eligible to enter individually or in teams of up to four people. Ventures at any stage from ideation to a currently operating startups are welcome to pitch.
