You are allowed 90 seconds to pitch your concept. Someone will stand in the back of the room and flashcards telling you how many seconds are left: 60, 30, 15 and 5. A bell will ring at 90 seconds, and you will be asked to stop presenting – even if you have not finished your pitch. PowerPoints are NOT allowed. However, if you have a prototype or drawing you wish to share, those items will be allowed.
