This is an example of the remote edition fo 2020. Go to the website of your specific edition if you want to figure out what's happening now!

Prepare for the Pitching Rehearsal: Instructions

During the pitches, when your team is not up

We show 3 pitches, and then interview 3 teams. Sit back and enjoy 🤩! Show ♥️ and give feedback in #pitch-chat.

During the pitches, when your team is up

  1. We'll show 3 pitches of 3 teams (sequence found here)

  2. After those 3 pitches we'll ask one team member of each team we just saw to answer one question.

  3. The three representatives of those teams go to the waiting room when their pitch is up.

  4. They'll be introduced to the pitch arena, where they answer the question.

  5. Leave when the 3 team representatives have answered the question 😘.

How to prepare:


  • Pitches of Team 1 (Bridges), 2 (ArTIFFact Control) and 3 (Simplification of election procedures) are shown

  • Representatives of Team 1, 2 and 3 go to the waiting room during those pitches.

  • Representatives of Team 1, 2 and 3 are introduced to the pitch area, and answer the question in that sequence.

  • They all leave at once when the answers have been given.

  • Next team pitches: 4, 5 and 6. During those pitches their representatives go to the waiting toom.

After the Pitches: Project Breakouts

After the pitches, you get the opportunity to discover more and perhaps view demos 😻.

The selected teams show demos or give more information, other teams can roam & discover! Recommended when roaming: switch every 5 minutes 😉

Select a Host

Your job is to make things go smoooooth. Write down who will.

  1. Go to the breakout room first to get moderator rights. Keep it open in your browser tab from the moment the pitch stream starts 😁

  2. Mute visitors Only people that are presenting or ask questions should have their mics on.

  3. Ask visitors to write down questions.

  4. Read those questions out loud & invite the writer to speak whenever their question gets addressed, so they can have a conversation.

  5. Something wrong? Have someone report to Miet in #practical-questions.

  6. If you have no visitors, think of a game you can play 😁 👯‍👯
