Pitching at a Hackathon - 10 Tips

  1. 1. Pitching your Idea: The Hackathon guide The no nonsense guide to communicating ideas with clarity and passion Dan Ellis – Rallyteam (www.rallyteam.com) April 29, 2015
  2. 2. The Goal This is about communicating your idea and the value of your idea
  3. 3. 10 Guidelines for successful pitching
  4. 4. #1 Grab attention There are a lot of pitches: get attention quickly – you have 10 seconds to develop rapport Example: Lead out with a attention grabbing fact or statistic. Or ask a leading question of the audience.
  5. 5. #2 Describe the problem Your hack-idea should be trying to solve a problem. What is the problem you are trying to solve and why would I care?
  6. 6. #3 Get to the point Once you’ve framed the problem – get to your solution Your time is short and so are attention spans
  7. 7. #4 Show the product Get to the demo quickly – everything else is theoretical. In a three minute pitch – get there in 30 seconds - Even a mockup is better than nothing - It doesn’t need to be polished and perfect --- It is a hackathon after all!
  8. 8. #5 Examples are Powerful - People relate to stories (Think how memorable movies are!) - Ideally, create a scenario with a persona - Walk through an example with your solution - Paint a picture of how it will be used in the real world
  9. 9. #6 Tone and Pace - Don’t have so much content that you need to rush when you speak - Speak clearly and with good pauses for effect - Less is more
  10. 10. #7 Address your Audience - Refer to but don’t talk at your slides – Face the audience - Look at the judges and establish eye contact
  11. 11. #8 Be Synchronistic - If you have someone driving the demo – make sure that the speaker matches what you’re showing! - You must practice being in synch
  12. 12. #9 Don’t get technical - For most solutions describing the underlying technologies doesn’t serve a purpose - If it’s relevant, it will come out in the questions
  13. 13. #10 End Strong - Bring the audience home - Remind them why it (your hack) matters - It’s OK and, in fact, almost preferable to end early
  14. 14. -- And -- Have Fun! Thanks! Dan Ellis dan.ellis@rallyteam.com @danclayellis
