Review the material on Blackboard relating to the collaboration with Umea and your previous assignments.
This assignment involves an elevator pitch verbal presentation based on the prototype which you have been allocated. The pitch is designed to demonstrate to the audience the market potential for the prototype. In this presentation you will only be allowed one slide and a maximum of 90 seconds to present your case for why the CEO of your company should allocate half a million dollars to funding the prototype’s development and marketing.
Students will be presenting in a live pitch session virtually to the other students who are working on the same prototype, as well as to the students in Umea and to the instructor in the virtual pitch room. All pitches and the subsequent feedback and discussion will be recorded to assist in the evaluation of the assessment.
You will be allocated a pitch slot in which you are to present. If you are not presenting you will be required to evaluate and rate the other presentations in your pitch session. Your rating and evaluation of the pitches in your session will also form part of this assessment.
