Draft Pitches

Teams are given 60 seconds to present their ideas. No slides. No props.

About This Event

WHAT: During this session teams will have the opportunity to present the first iteration of their work. Draft Pitches are not to be accompanied by visual aids. Instead, teams will prepare a verbal presentation of the enterprise that they seek to propose. The draft pitches will be delivered in quick succession, without pausing for feedback, with dinner served immediately after the final team's presentation. During dinner, team members will be distributed into new, mixed groups such that each participant is sitting next to at least one person who is not on their team. Participants and mentors are encouraged to talk with each other, giving feedback on the ideas shared in the pitches.

WHY: The Draft Pitches serve to encourage teams to solidify their ideas enough to share with others. A one minute pitch, without group feedback, allows for immediate diffusion of ideas; the structure of the dinner allows for the participants and mentors to mix and provide each other low stress feedback.
