The Final Pitch is the culminating event of FlexFactor and represents a key pillar of the program; the opportunity for students to connect with members of industry, government, and higher education. Engagement with Industry Panelists during the Final Pitch helps students learn to be comfortable presenting in front of an audience, think quickly on their feet and practice professional communication.
Panelists will listen to the teams 3-5 minute presentation and will ask thoughtful questions, provide constructive feedback and share reflective comments with students. Panelists may ask questions around their technology, product development process, business model, and general experience in the program.
The Final Pitch is a transformative experience that students can leverage to build a bright future for themselves and the presence of Industry Panelists is paramount to helping them do so. The time commitment for being a panelist ranges from an hour to an hour and a half.
