So how did the presentation go?
I believe the presentation went great. I am receiving a lot of praise for it and I know it is a big improvement as compared to the week before when I practiced with my fellow Sandbox Finalists.
When I had started working on my presentation, I began with the PowerPoint so I could organize all my ideas and make sure that I was hitting all the points that were required of me. But then I think I got over-confident because when I looked at all the information, I was like "Oh! I do these presentations all the time in my business classes!" and with everything that I had going on the week of the practice....... I couldn't really practice.
So it was a good wake up call to get back on track! I did my usual and wrote a small script that I memorized but had note cards as well. I received a few questions. All of which made sense to ask and I could answer readily. I was the last presenter out of everyone so I was scheduled to present from about 9-920pm so I'm sure the judges were a bit tuckered out.
But at the end of the day, I am happy with the outcome, and even happier about the overall Accelerator experience. I recommend to any and all entrepreneurs that are steps away from launching and have a well thought out idea that they can fully dedicate their time to and make use of all the resources provided. It was an amazing experience and I intend to keep up with everyone!
