Teams & Pitching

We have a 2 hour slot for pitching with 10 minutes for the judges to convene

We’d like you to give a 5 minute pitch and/or demo, and allow 2 minutes for Q&A

If you don’t have time for a demo – screen shots are OK

Pitches need to be tight and punchy! Make sure you practice in advance

We can really only handle 15 teams if we want to keep to the timeline

We don’t want to set a minimum team size, but we would strongly encourage you to form teams of 4 people or more
