IMPORTANT: Additional considerations for pitching:

  1. No videos, only GIFs to use judiciously. No audio at all.

  2. Any special fonts must be sent to Remy in advance also.

  3. QA Format: Groups of 7 companies in each session (3 sessions over the 2 days). 90-second pitch, 3-min of Q&A from 3 expert reviewers followed by 90-seconds of commentary from the reviewers to the audience, then the audience votes. This will be the format for each of the 7 companies in a session.

  4. Nota bene: There will be a gong on stage and you will hear that uncomfortable sound at 90-seconds.

So, you cannot go over the time allowed. Period. No one wants to be gonged!
