Do I need to do a pitch video?

Yes! We want you to tell us about your cool startup, your awesome entrepreneurial connections, or your impressive experience – all in 2 minutes or less.

Your pitch video will form a key part of your application, so think about including:

  • About yourself, your team members and your experiences
  • Why are you applying to Hot DesQ?
  • What’s your existing product or startup? 
  • What value will you add to the Queensland startup community?
  • What problem are you solving?
  • What markets are you trying to capture?

Think of it like your pitch to investors, but not as formal. It doesn’t need to be professional quality – just a phone is fine, as long as our judges can get some more information about you and your team and why you want to come to Queensland.
