Startup Weekend Presentation 101

How to structure your Sunday night presentation.

Consider this as just a guideline of the important points you might wish to convey during your presentation. Feel free to add your own flavour and ignore anything that doesn't apply.

  • I probably should add that I am a huge advocate of talking about the team right at the start of the presentation. This should certainly be standard practice outside of Startup Weekend.

    So, why then, did I choose to put the team slide at the end of this deck? Simply because most Startup Weekend team presenters are not experienced in presenting, which leads to poor timing. If you blow half of your pitch talking about the details of your team, you're unlikely to recover the presentation in the remaining time.
