In Milestone Six, you will submit an audiovisual presentation (such as a webcam presentation or PowerPoint with audio) designed to pitch your concept to
potential financial backers or senior executives. Your presentation should highlight the key elements of your business concept and implementation plan that are
most likely to convince your audience to support the idea moving forward. Remember that while your audience wants to know you have thoroughly researched
and planned out your idea, including implementation, they do not want a verbatim or lengthy repetition of the information in the business implementation plan
when you pitch the idea. Instead, you should strategically select the information you will present and in how much detail based on your intended audience. You
should bear in mind the key information they will want to know and the types of concerns they are likely to have, and anticipate the types of questions they are
likely to ask.
Also bear in mind that financial or managerial support for a project often has as much to do with the individuals leading the project as with the concept. Backers
need to be convinced of project leaders’ and key staff’s ability to be the face and drivers of the idea, as well as of their honesty and integrity. Since you are
presumably one of the key team members, how you present is just as important as what you present in building audience trust. Be sure to communicate clearly
and professionally throughout.

Guidelines for Submission: Your audiovisual presentation should be approximately 30 minutes (or roughly the equivalent of 25 slides) with sufficient audio to
give the audience a clear, but concise, understanding of the concept and its eventual implementation. Cite your sources within the text of your slides and on a
