Bringing it all together - Idea, Research & Naming & Branding. Can your idea survive the scrutiny of seasoned CEOs? How can the idea be refined? What elements are missing from your idea? How can you improve the way that you describe your idea? The mentors will give the Founders feedback on their 1 minute pitch and will rate both the idea and pitch on a 1 to 5 scale.
