If selected to present at the SXSW EDU Expo, how will my pitch and presentation be graded?

Each finalist will have 4 minutes to present their business idea with the aid of a PowerPoint slide presentation. The live panel of judges will then have up to 3 minutes to ask each finalist clarifying questions.

After each finalist has presented, the panel of judges will recess and evaluate each finalist using the following rubric:


  •  Creativity/Innovation
  • Product/Service Clarity
  • Market Potential
  • Competitive Landscape
  • Business Model
  • Strength of Management Team
  • Verbal Presentation
