There's also some really great hints here too:

This week is all about filming and communicating your great ideas to your audience. This involves filming both your pitch (4 mins) and demo videos (2 mins). You now need to turn your business plan into your pitch where you tell the world how awesome your solution is. Plan it carefully as the pitch could be the thing that makes your solution stand out from the others. Get creative and most of all have fun with it. Practice before you film. Our tech girl supporter Joyce Ong has developed a guide for filming especially for us at the Tech Girls Movement. Some really great advice for you!

If you haven’t yet finished building your prototype, start planning for what you will say and which features you will show in your demo video.

Instead of a video from me this week I thought you might enjoy seeing Steve Job's pitch for the first ever iPod - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kN0SVBCJqLs

Let me know if I can help further and our judges are getting excited to see your pitches :)

Have a super week.
