Competition was tough
and the jury had to think hard for the selections. We have been contacting all participants over the week and informing them about their application status.

As a common feedback for all pitches:
all were confident and able to tell their stories in understandable way. Also practicing on Monday morning showed a difference. Something that you should consider to make your deck better: do not put too much text per slide, just a couple of sentences at maximum highlighting your most important message for each slide. Tell your story, do not read your slides. Continue your venture and pitch always.

Last put not least, congratulations: you gave your pitch at the front of a public audience, you can be proud of yourself!
