Hints from the Instructor:
For this assignment, i usually suggest that you start by making a case that shows the need. Make it dramatic/attention grabbing if possible. Are there any safety concerns or risks in the current situation? Use news stories from the past year if possible. Then present your vision and mission statements. Focus on the big picture.

Under Problem Worth Solving, be more basic. You are looking at your customer’s needs. e.g. You will not succeed unless you do this!

Then your solution is based on the vision you have presented.

Once you have presented a clear technical view of what you are offering.

Then make the case as to why should the customer investor trust/partner with/believe in you? Why are you better than your competition? Try to hit all the items in the assignment instructions (Company, Headline, Problem Worth Solving, Our Solution, Target Market, Competitive Landscape, Funding Needs, Sales Channels, Marketing Activities, Forecast, Milestones, Team and Key Roles, Partners and Resources)

General Notes: Sides need to be background and mostly titles or SHORT bullet points. Although the text on the slide is not meant to be read, it must be readable. Hit the highlights only and save the details for hand outs or put them in the speaker’s notes. Put citations in the speaker’s notes.

Present financial summaries and projections. Have you accounted for paying yourself? Put the financials last since that is your “ask.”

Make sure to include media (pictures, clip art, text art, etc.)

It all flows from a clear articulation of the problem!
