Each term at Concept, the most eager students get their pitches ready and apply to the Concept $5k Pitch Competition. In their strive for greatness, student teams spend weeks preparing and tweaking their final presentations to share with our panel of experienced judges at the Concept $5k Semi-Finals.  

This term 20 teams were selected to pitch over the span of two evenings. Our panel of judges consisted of: Mila Banerjee of Pronti AI and Business Advisor at Velocity, Darian Zigante of Wittington Ventures, and Brandon Zhao of Two Small Fish Ventures. After each team presented their 3-minute pitch, the judges then got a 2-minute Q&A session with them. Beyond the Q&A, they also provided valuable feedback and advice for all the teams. From everyone at Concept and all the students involved, thank you, judges! 

The judges deliberated in private and selected 8 prestigious teams to move on to the Concept $5k Finals. Presenting to you our finalists!
