Preparing for a business pitch competition requires careful planning and practice.

To get ready for a pitch competition, the following steps are recommended:

  1. Refine and streamline your pitch deck [1]. Ensure that it clearly outlines your business, product or service, target market and audience, and how you plan to achieve success.
  2. Practice your pitch and be prepared to answer questions and provide convincing arguments for why your product or service is superior to the competition.
  3. Research the competition and be sure to have a thorough understanding of the other businesses that are competing.
  4. Rehearse your pitch in front of friends and family to gain confidence and receive feedback.
  5. Prepare for the next steps in case you receive a positive response. Have a plan for what you want your audience to do and what will happen if you are successful.
  6. Get ready to have fun and learn a ton!
