Milestone 1:

1-minute Video Pitch 

  • Submit a 1-minute video of your idea on your project page. The video should address the following components:
    • What issue or problem are you trying to solve, and why?
    • How are you going to solve it with your idea?
    • How is it going to create impact for your customers/beneficiaries?
    • Who is on your team and who are you working/partnering with (if applicable)?
  • Be creative with your video. You can record yourself delivering your pitch, you can narrate a slide deck (PowerPoint), you can create an animation (there are many tools available online), you can draw out and narrate your idea as a story on a whiteboard, or anything else that will allow you to stand out. Be creative and have fun with the process!
  • Once you created the video, upload it to as an “unlisted” video (unlisted videos are not searchable and can only be viewed with a unique link), and post the video using your unique link to your project page.
