[23-25 Oct] Pitching Preparation & Practice


This two and a half days training will focus on preparing selected teams to present at the pitching event of the 3rd Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum. The scope is to help teams define the message, prepare a convincing presentation and address the issues relevant to the audience. It will build upon the team’s understanding of the value (innovation) it introduces to the market and its relevance to customer needs. Frequent presentations and pitches, short and structured team assignments and 1 to 1 meetings will accelerate the preparation for the pitching event. The Business Model Canvas methodology will be used, along with other tools that help teams better describe business ideas and convey messages. The final day will be dedicated to team presentations and feedback. The outcome will be a well-defined roadmap for each team to finalize its pitch deck and prepare for the pitching event. All teams are required to join group sessions.
