Final Pitch Night 

Presented by Bond University 

Date: Monday 21st October
Time: 5:30pm – 9pm
Location: Princeton Room, Bond University

The Final Pitch Night is each team's opportunity to present their idea to a broader audience - including investors - and convince the judging panel that their idea is the best! 

Each team will be given a dedicated display area for the purpose of showcasing their idea to the judging panel and audience at the start of the evening. Displays may include merchandise, prototypes, audio visual displays and practical demonstrations. The judges will allocate points for each team’s display which will contribute to their overall result.

Presentations must be structured, rehearsed and kept to five (5) minutes in duration. The presentation may include a video and demonstration of any working prototypes which may have been developed. At the conclusion of each team’s presentation, judges will be given the opportunity to ask questions about the idea or concept (2 minutes).
