This exercise is designed to help you articulate your business idea and communicate that id.to the class in short”pitch”. The pitch should be in writing and cannot last more than one minute, spoken. Each individual in the class will present a different idea that they have developed, either on their own or with the team.
If the idea has been developed with the team, each individual is still expected to present a different idea. The ideas may be distinct or may be variations on a theme for each team.
On the date of the presentation, you should bring your idea in writing. I will call up teams and have each member of the team make their minute pitch. Each person will hand in their writer idea (which must be the same copy as that which is presented orally) to me.
I will be grading each pitch based on the following:
Is there a clear description of the product or service?
Do you present a clear rationale for the need for the product or service?
Do you include a description of who you think your customer will be for this product or service?
