Congratulations from all of us at Startups Ignite to JuneBrain and One City Entertainment for being awarded the Highest Growth and Fastest Growth categories in the mid-way pitch competition.
Halfway into the Accelerate24 program, participating startups compete in a pitch event to evaluate the following in a 5 minute presentation where the mentor community evaluates and objectively scores to gauge: Team / Problem Vision / Value Prop / Product: / Market / Business Model / Scale / Exit / Execution / Coachability
The competition had two winning categories of the highest score and the most progress. We awarded both categories with a cash prize in addition to the honors. Ultimately, what we are looking for a repeatable sales process in the pitch which is the cornerstone of a viable business model.
