Each Finalist will be invited to give a short pitch (4 or 5 minutes) followed by a short Q&A with the Place by Design Judges. While this seems like too short a time to present, past participants have enjoyed the challenge of refining their elevator pitch. Attendees love the fast-paced nature of the event.
Presenters are sent guidelines and paired with pitch coaches to rehearse their presentations before SXSW Eco. We recommend focusing your presentation on the impact of your work and how your process and design achieved the intended impact.
