The Innovation Lab will bring selected finalist innovators together with a panel of industry leader judges for a brief pitch on stage followed by a live, unscripted Q&A and discussion session. In this competitive event, following each presentation, the product is judged by the panel and the audience on overall innovation and excellence. At the conclusion of the event, votes are tallied, and awards are presented to winning participants.
Leading up to the event and at the conference, Innovation Lab Finalists will receive one-on-one coaching from industry mentors on business and industry basics, as well as guidance on networking opportunities. Finalists will receive support from a presentation coach to assist them in developing their stage pitch and honing their presentation skills.
