  • After each company’s elevator pitch the panel will vote on a scale of 1-5 as to how much they like the company.
  • The top 5 vote getters will get to do a 4-min. presentation followed by 4 min. of Q&A followed by 4 min. of non-rebuttal feedback. The panelists will vote again on the company based on their 4-minute presentation.
