Phase 3: Top 10 Presentations

The Top 10 business start-up ideas are selected to present their ideas to a panel of judges in May. There will be two types of presentations; one is the Top Five ideas being pitched LIVE at the Finale on May 7th! To help prepare the students for these presentations, business mentors will provide feedback during financial coaching, a formal practice, and one-on-one coaching, depending on their need. These Top Five finalists are competing for thousands of dollars in prizes and awards.

The Top Six through Ten start-up ideas will discuss their concepts with judges during a Design Review Interview. Finalists will be offered feedback and encouragement to continue developing their idea. They too will be recognized with cash prizes at the Finale.

  • Design Review Interviews: Tuesday, April 28 at HCOE
  • Top Five Mock Presentations: Thursday, April 30 at HCOE
  • Top Five Finale: Thursday, May 7th, HCOE’s Sequoia Conference Center
