Tips for scientists to pitch...

How do you get someone interested to partner with your research/solution? We want this competition to help to get you there. It is a brief pitch that you use to spark interest in your real world solution. It is an ice breaker that will invite interest and leave the listener wanting more. You can google “elevator pitch” and discover hundreds of pages of information. 

Here are some tips:

1) Engage your audience without jargon on 3 core pieces:

-What is the problem?

- How will your capability contribute to solving the problem?

-Why should anyone care? NOT NECESSARILY IN THAT ORDER…

2) Remember to practice, practice, practice...

Here's a good article about science–specific pitches. Better still, check out the hundreds of other pitches from competitions that are open to the public on Thinkable. Some good examples include:
