What and how to present when the stakes are high.


Time to start planning for what you will present as your final deliverable. Is it a “pitch deck”? Although you’re not ready to approach investors, fundamentally, the purpose of a pitch deck is to attract the attention and the resources you need to take your idea to the next step. Whether that’s money, advice, connections, whatever. It’s also a way to bring all of your recent thinking together and for 10 minutes, on stage, to sound totally grounded and confident about working on something that is real, worthwhile and winnable.

What do we expect in your presentation? We expect you to anticipate and have good answers to the kinds of questions you might get from several distinct audiences (distinct in concept - the same person might embody more than one of these):

  • The Shark Tank Part - imagine “tycoons” asking questions to inform whether or not they will invest their own money in the project - you need to think about ROI, help us figure out know “is this worth my money?"
  • The straight forward business part: Every part of lean canvas should be considered up for grabs - that is, you had better be prepared to have something solid to say in response to question about any part of it.
  • The Iovine-and-Young-and-Nowhere-Else (IYAundnirgendwosonst) Part - what makes this a product that can only come from the Academy?
  • The Delta part: real measurable results - show us, on one slide, many concrete accomplishments; what do we have to show for the 15*24 hours that's gone into this?
