This workshop will help you shape a pitch for your applications to the QUT bluebox Robotics Accelerator. From pitching a strong value proposition to describing how your team beats the competition, learn how to put your best foot forward when pitching your idea!

You've now come up with your idea! Great, that's easy! Selling them to strangers is hard. All too often, entrepreneurs, sales executives, and marketing managers go to great lengths to show how their new business plans or creative concepts are practical and high margin—only to be rejected by corporate decision makers who don’t seem to understand the real value of the idea.
