6 min video pitch presentation
6 Min Video Pitch Presentation

As part of the selection process we require a short 6 min video presentation

The presentation needs to cover the following areas:

  • Elevator pitch
  • The problem
  • The customer
  • The solution
  • Business model

Be sure to focus on how this aligns with the Smarter Planet vision. Be sure to focus

on progress you have made to date (what you have achieved). You should spend no more than 1

min on each of the topics above. Ideally aim to video record both yourself and the presentation

(or just yourself if not using slides). The video should be uploaded to a site like Youtube or Vimeo.

Smile. It’s ok to have fun when you pitch

As our friend Nic Brisbourne (http://bit.ly/fn9vRI) says ‘ Pitch me like I’m your best friend’

  • Give it straight
  • Keep it interesting
  • Deliver it like a conversation rather than like a firehose
  • Try to inject some humour
  • Focus on the areas that your friend wants to hear about
