Pitching to an investor is always a bummer. Me and my boys always come up with these crazy games to help us improve our pitching skills, for instance each person gets a minute to present an idea to the team and see if they bought it. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt. C4DLab gives teams a chance to present their idea to this huge group of majorly computer science and at the end get very constructive feedback on their presentation.
The #Frideation gig starts from 4pm and goes up to around 6pm. At the entrance, the C4DLab team show you where to sit as their photographer(@MADEkarubiu) captures every moment. The usual room setup is a projector pointed at a whiteboard and sits arranged behind the setup.
