Recommendations for the Top 20 Pitch Teams
To maximize the chances of the Top 20 teams making it through to the Top 5, we have the following recommendations:
- Practice, practice, practice! Great speakers make it look easy. Usually, that’s because they’ve practised their talk 100 times.
- Get some help from a seasoned entrepreneur in refining your pitch. Our coaches are good, but they’re also incredibly busy. A 30-minute call can only do so much. Ask parents or teachers if they can help with finding a good entrepreneur willing to help.
- In business, it’s all about traction! If you can arrive on pitch night (3 Aug) having already sold 10 000 units of your product, chances are good that you’ll win.
- Sometimes you need less than you’d think to get started selling: The Dropbox MVP story.
