I had fun preparing for this competition because it taught me the basics on how to present my idea as a business. The template for the pitch deck and the suggestions for the demo video made me think about the big picture on what my business can become.

BoomStartup’s first-ever, open pitch competition was held on February, 24, 2021. Twenty one finalists competed during the live streamed event.
