NEW CATEGORY–HIGHER EDUCATION INNOVATION:
DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO TO GENERATE NEW REVENUE SOURCES? THERE WILL BE A CASH PRIZE FOR THE BEST PITCH IN THIS AREA!
To be eligible to compete in the Innovate New Mexico Student Pitch Competition, you must submit an application with your video submission by April 11th, 2016.
Instructions and Guidelines:
There will be two rounds in the competition.
Submission Criteria for First Round
Record a 90 second video of a student or team of students delivering an elevator pitch for your business/idea. Videos should capture student(s) delivering the pitch to the camera. The pitch should be delivered in a single take. Videos should not be edited together or produced with visuals or effects. This doesn’t mean it needs to be filmed on the first take, but there should be no post-production done to the pitch (i.e. don’t edit two halves of different takes together). Avoid reading from scripts or cue cards. Please be sure to record the video in a reasonably quiet environment to make it easier for the judges to hear and understand. Avoid recording outdoors or in loud hallways.
A panel of judges will view the video submissions and determine the finalists that will move on to the Final Round at Bow and Arrow Brewing on April 25, 2016. Finalists will be announced by April 18, 2016.
Finalists will present a 90-second “live” pitch to at an evening reception on April 25, 2016 from 5:30pm – 7:30pm in front of the business leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, and others in the community. Winners will be determined by audience voting.
