About this Program

Submission: PowerPoint/GoogleSlides Pitch Deck

Your pitch presentation will need to be in the form of a slide deck using PowerPoint or GoogleSlides.

Guidelines for Submission:

-Presentation Length: 6-8 Slides, including your cover slide.
-State the problem and your solution (similar to your 1 minute pitch)
-Describe your target audience and market.
-What is your “ask”? How much money do you need to launch and/or what will you use the prize money for?
-What are your next steps to launch/scale?

This is an exercise in being clear and concise when you're discussing your business idea, a skill all entrepreneurs need. Your presentation should be created in a way that if you weren't there to provide an explanation for each slide, a potential investor or customer will be able to understand your business.

All presentations MUST HAVE the following information listed on their cover slide:

-Company Name
-Full names of all team members
-STEM/MAKER prize designation if applicable
