Receive Professional Feedback from Experienced Investors

Select teams and participants will be invited to gain professional feedback on their strategy from experienced investors and attendees. These sessions are not open to the other attendees. An email will be sent closer to the conference date if your school is selected to present with further instructions.

Presentations will last for approximately 15 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of Q&A from the panel. Students should approach the panel as if they are making a presentation to their board of directors and/or a prospective client. The presentation provides additional feedback to the participating teams but is not used in the judging process to determine the portfolio competition winners.
