Backed by Data: Pitch

Develop a pitch to convince investors that they should fund YOUR solution. You should use the information you gathered/created in the previous steps, but don’t be surprised if you need to change things about your Key Business Proposition or solution design as you think about your pitch. Remember to explain why the problem is so important, how your solution will solve it, who will buy it, and why. Be sure to look at How to Build a Pitch as well as the Pitch Judging Rubric (click here for an editable Word Doc version), which is what investors will use to evaluate your pitch.
