Project Description

Create and upload a 10-slide pitch deck for your business idea

ASSIGNMENT

Your assignment is to create and share a 10-slide pitch deck for your business idea. As we went over in the class lessons, limiting yourself to 10 slides will keep you focused as a presenter and improve your chances of getting the attention of people who can help your business.

DELIVERABLE

A completed project will include a 10-slide presentation deck that covers at least the following:

  • Basic information about the company (info about team, competitors, proof of concept, etc.)
  • Your "wow" factor in 10 words or less

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES

  • Check out a sample project here. This also includes a downloadable slide template you can use to build your pitch deck (also attached below).
  • Download the class resource guide below.
  • It would be great to get to know each other! Introduce yourself in the class introductions discussions and say hi.
