Following on from the feedback given to you on your Business Concept Plan in Assessment 2, you are now required to pitch your final Business Case to investors or management for approval of your idea.
In order to complete, a sound Business Case you need to ensure that you have covered all required aspects, which need to be considered before proceeding with the “build” of an innovation.
This assessment requires students to incorporate the theory learnt in Modules 1 through to Module 5 to present a Business Pitch of your concept, which you introduced to us in Assessment 2. It is important you draw on the concepts of innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship to support your presentation. Instructions:
This assessment has two components:
1. 5-7 minute video presentation
2. One page briefing document
Your presentation will be assessed based on the Rubric below and must be a minimum of 5 minutes, and limited to 7 minutes. You need to ensure your presentation is succinct and impactful. Your aim should be to finish your presentation with your audience excited about your opportunity and wanting to be a part of the journey! This presentation will include some or all of the details which you included in your concept plan.
Remember that your audience is investors or management on a Board and as such you will need to pitch your presentation accordingly. You can watch the following YouTube video for some tips! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnIPpUiTcRc
The materials you have covered in Modules 1 through to Modules 5 should provide you with the framework for the components to include in your presentation.
Your presentation should include at a minimum the following areas:
1. Description of your Idea:
a. Industry Background
d. Business Model - how will you make money?
e. Competitor Analysis
f. Unique value proposition – what makes you unique, better and different from your competition
2. Technology Plan (if applicable)
a. Description of Technology
b. Technology comparison
3. Marketing Plan:

*Please note that you are not required to develop a website for your prototype. The expectation is that your prototype could be a diagram, a flow chart or a drawing.
To support your presentation, you will also be required to submit a one page briefing document which succinctly captures the key points and effectively summarises your presentation for management / decision makers which you have covered above. This briefing document should be sufficient enough to provide an overview of your presentation in the event where a key decision maker cannot see it or needs something to refer to later.
You must recognise all sources of information; including images that you can include in your work. Reference your work according to the APA 6th edition guidelines. Please see more information on referencing here http://library.laureate.net.au/research_skills/referencing
Submit your video, briefing document and any required attachments in the Assessment 3 Business
Pitch submission link in the Assessment section found in the main navigation menu of the subject Blackboard site. A rubric will be attached to the assessment. The Learning Facilitator will provide feedback via the Grade Centre in the LMS portal. Feedback can be viewed in My Grades.
