Video Pitch

A strong and effective pitch opens doors to true engagement and deeper dialogue about a business, person or idea.  One of the key elements of RISE is our pitch training, Hitting Your Target, which will help you plan, practice and perfect your pitch.

New this year, presenters can upload a video pitch, which can be uploaded during one of the Hitting Your Target sessions.

All students who submit a video pitch will receive 10 additional points to their overall score. In addition, the highest scoring video pitch will be recognized with a “Best Video Pitch” Award, as well as a $500 check, at the REACH Awards Reception.

How Will the Videos be Judged?
Presenters will receive a score from 1-30 for their video pitch based on the following criteria:

  1. Clarity of value proposition (10 points) –What is the benefit of this research? Who will benefit from it?
  2. Speaker Presentation (10 points) – Was the material presented clearly? Is the information presented in a way that a novice could understand?
  3. Impact (10 points) – Is the presentation of the research compelling?
