Are You Ready?
At last we are at the summit of our entrepreneurial adventure! Way to go! This is the place where we are going to “put it all together” with what we call the
Investor Deck and Virtual Entrepreneurship Showcase (which is worth 15 per cent of your final grade).
This is your chance to really showcase what you have learned this semester!
Create your Investor Deck (a voice-over-video/narrated slideshow) and submit this to the Assignment 5: Investor Deck assessment folder for grading.
Post your Investor Deck to the Virtual Entrepreneurship Showcase discussion forum to share your concept with your peers. Be sure to watch all of the
presentations in the forum, engage in some conversation around your peers’ presentations and respond to comments on your own.
Let’s review the assignment:
Congratulations! You’ve made it to the summit of our entrepreneurial journey! In this final assignment, you have a chance to showcase your business concept
by preparing a comprehensive audition to appear on CBC’s Dragon’s Den (where you will be able to sell your concept to the dragons!).
Step 1: Create an “investor deck” (a narrated slideshow) that will help you sell your concept to CBC’s Dragon’s Den that will ensure you land a chance to pitch
your concept to the dragons on national TV!
Step 2: Submit your narrated slideshow, by Monday, December 13, at 11:59 p.m., to the Assignment 5: Investor Deck assessment folder.
Step 3: Post your investor deck, also by Monday, December 13, at 11:59 p.m., to the Assignment 5: Investor Deck discussion forum.
Step 4: From Tuesday, December 14 to Friday, December 17, watch all of the presentations posted to the discussion forum and engage in conversation
around what you see.
Through your narrated slideshow, we are looking to see you demonstrate the following outcomes:
Communicate clearly, concisely and correctly in written, spoken and visual format to describe and pitch your concept to your intended audience. (5 points)
Using appropriate technology, showcase the information that you’ve gathered, analyzed and generated about your entrepreneurial journey: your business
concept (brand name, corporate colours, logo, tag line), your assessment of your target market, your competitive advantage/elevator pitch, your business
plan and your marketing strategy. (5 points).
Interact effectively with others — your business partner (if applicable) and your audience to generate interest in — and defend — your concept. (5 points).
Make your pitch compelling and easy to act on! Don’t forget to include your elevator pitch (it’s a great way to get your audience’s attention) and a link to the
website you created (please click on the link to your website during your presentation so the audience can see what it looks like).
Have fun — and good luck!
