Welcome to the final day of Startup Weekend Nanaimo! Its the final stretch and you should be working on your Sunday Night presentation soon. The format is this: 5 minutes to present, 5 minutes of questions & answers. You may use slides or other multi-media on the TV in the seminar room downstairs. You may also have 1 person present or your whole team, its up to you (but I recommend 1 person).

At 3pm Jeff will be running a “pitch clinic” to help get 1 person from each team focused on their presentation. Stay tuned for more info.

At 4pm we’ll be doing a technology check in the main room, to ensure that you can connect to the TV. The building offers a single, simple, and reliable option: Apple TV. If you want to connect in any other way, you’ll need to use your own cables, etc. If you don’t have an Apple device on your team, you can copy your presentation over to one of the organizer’s computers and they’ll put it on the TV for you.

Dinner will be at around 5pm, then we’ll congregate downstairs in the lounge to meet our judges and see your final presentations.

Remember that judges want to see you demonstrate that you’ve done customer validation, you’ve developed a realistic business model, and that you’ve built something! Make sure to tell the audience how you talked to customers, how many, what you heard, and what you did with that info. Tell us how you came to the business model you’ve presented and tell us why its the best. Finally, show us your product!

Let any organizer or the facilitator know if you have any questions. Good work, and good luck!
