A team from Colyton have made it through to semi finals of the PolyU global challenge! The team is going to Hong Kong!

The Challenge is:

Organized by PolyU in Hong Kong.
A business plan competition for creative talents to showcase their business flair.
A unique platform for international academic, cultural and professional exchanges.
An opportunity to turn your ideas into innovative products or services.

You can join if you are (at the time of the Finals in June 2015):

A senior secondary school student.
A full-time university undergraduate.

It is a unique opportunity to:

Explore your innovative and entrepreneurial potential.
Obtain exposure to the real business world.
Expand your professional and social network.
Start developing your portfolio.

The Challenge consists of the following divisions:

Secondary School Division.
University Division (for undergraduates who are studying for a first degree only).

Leading up to the semi-final and final rounds of the Global Student Challenge (GSC) at PolyU in June 2015, we will introduce a unique and exciting component: the “Best of the Best Elevator Pitch” Competition.

This will be an excellent opportunity for all 60 GSC 2015 shortlisted teams to make their innovative and cutting edge products/services known to all angel investors worldwide prior to all actual competition held in Hong Kong. This component will not affect teams’ overall results but will be an additional opportunity for teams to win yet another award.

What is an Elevator Pitch?

It is a 60-second business description of what your business is about and why someone should work with you. It’s called an “Elevator Pitch” because it describes the challenge: “How would you explain your business and make a sale if fate placed you in an elevator with your dream prospect and you only had the timespan of an elevator ride. This is often used by an entrepreneur pitching an idea to a venture capitalist or angel investor to receive funding”.
