How does it work?

The framework of the Youth Pitch presentation is simple, the presenter or team of presenters has five minutes to tell the story of their business idea and then respond to questions. The main goal of a Youth Pitch is to illustrate a business opportunity. A pitch needs to be clear and straightforward and not overly technical.
