What Makes a Good Startup Presentation? Read here..


Startup Weekend Evansville gets closer every day.  If you were part of the excitement last year, you know the pressure teams are under to get a great presentation prepared.  For aspiring entrepreneurs, this could be the most important part of the Startup Weekend learning process.  After working with many teams this summer and fall, I wanted to create a short list of what makes a good presentation.  I found one instead (thanks to the folks at Tourist app, the team that won SW Bloomington) that summarizes the entire process really well.  Their advice –

  • If you don’t grab people within the first minute, they’re going to start checking their email.
  • Tell the story through the problem. It needs to be a story about problems and solutions.
  • Have a concrete business plan and drive home how you’re going to make money.
