  • Think of a business idea. It can be a product, service, social enterprise, or technology business.
  • Create a video of yourself pitching the business idea. 
  • Keep the camera focused on you for most of the video. We want to see and hear you pitching your idea. We don’t want to see a commercial.
  • Keep your video short, under two minutes.
  • Entries will be judged on the CREATIVITY of the idea, business name, and video; the PERSUASIVENESS of the elevator pitch; and the OVERALL QUALITY of the idea, pitch and video.
