Pitch No. 1
22 August 2017
Our First Pitch Was Quite The Learning Experience
After working 18 hour days for weeks, honing every slide for content and spending
more time editing than writing we managed to get everything we wanted to say
down to the required 6 minute pitch - 12 slides - 30 seconds a slide,
We were very proud of what we had to sell
However the judges didn't exactly share the same opinion!
Upon arrival at the venue we were told we had 4 minutes, not 6 and the format
would be a "speed dating" structure, instead of presenting to the entire room
all at once, we had to set up in front of 2 judges for 4 minutes, then move onto the next
table and give the same pitch over again repeating to 5 different judging stations!
After feeling like we had the rug pulled out from under us it became very clear
we needed to be ready for anything, at any given moment.
Althoug we didn't win the first prize we did pique an investors interest and was
asked to provide our complete deck for further review.
We did have a great support group from the VIP Mastermind who also
had their share of opinions and you know what they say about opinions!
Just kidding guys, thanks for being there, can't wait to do it again and we will!
Stay tuned we will announce the next venue for our second pitch very soon!
