Pitch Fest Virtual Format

· Each company will deliver a 1-minute elevator to the Investor Panelists.

· After each company’s elevator pitch the panel will vote on a scale of 1-5 (5 being highest) to rate the company.

· The top 5 vote getters will move on to round 2 and deliver a 4-minute pitch with slide presentation followed by a Q&A session with the panel, followed by panel non-rebuttal feedback. The panelists will vote again on the company based on their 4-minute ppt.

· Winners will be announced following each round of pitches and will be presented a certificate at the conclusion of the event.

Companies that do well often secure meetings with the investors on the panel and/or in our attendee audience that result in discussions that lead to investment!
