Lesson 12:  Pitch

  • Using the Prepare your Pitch Planner handed out in class today, discuss the pitch requirements with your team (page 1).  

  • Then use the organizer on page 2 to draft bullet points for your pitch.  You should also decide who will speak for each part of your presentation.

  • Video pitch will be required for submission to the Georgia Tech InVenture State Competition.  Georgia Tech will provide specific details and directions to teachers.

  • Be sure to include how your solution is ORIGINAL when compared to similar products on Google Patents, Amazon  and other searches.

Practice Pitching your idea in less than 3 minutes. 

  • Review Inventure pitch's from the Inventure Challenge page.

  • Don't get "Gonged!" by " reading" your presentation...that is boring!  Memorize bullet points and practice saying them.

  • Nervous?  FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT!  yOU CAN DO IT!
