‚ÄčQuad Cities Fast Pitch

Presentation Tips


  • Grab the judge's attention early. Hook them, then reel them in.
  • Whenever possible, weave your business idea into a story, YOUR Story.
  • Keep their attention by being passionate about your idea, product or service. After all, you are going to make your customers better off.
  • Keep the goal in mind. What is it that you need to bring your idea to market? Money? Marketing? Mentoring? Production? A combination?
  • Be succinct, concise and clear - You only have TEN MINUTES to convince the judges to pick YOU!
  • Do not overwhelm the judges with technological jargon.
  • Stick with the highlights - speed talking is bad form.
  • Practice, then revise, then do it again.
