10 Best Ways To Prepare For The Competition
Ensure to have at least one member of your team on ground
If you can do a brand (Tshirt of Cap) ensure to wear it during your pitch or video
Have a proper pitch deck show casing your product
Do a summary video of your product not more than 3mins in video
Do a business plan for your product and have it ready (They might not need it)
Know your financial analysis well and ensure your business is able to make profit
Be fluent in speaking
Know your product well
Go to YouTube and learn how to pitch your product or services, if you fall under disruptors, make sure to showcase a sample of your product while pitching. Your pitching must be highly professional.
The last part is your business plan, they will keep rejecting it until you do a good job.
Once your business plan is approved, that is when you have finally arrived and can start planning on what to do with the grant
