After two weeks off for the holidays, the cohort at AcceleratorHK was back at work this week. We started the week off right with the 1:1 meetings. The teams are starting to spend more time building the apps and preparing for Demo Day, which is going to be held on Wednesday February 6th. Less than 4 weeks away!!
We also had a great visit by mentor Jochen Kleef. Jochen has vast experience as an entrepreneur as well as an investor so the questions asked to Jochen were vast.
We also had a social where we went for Korean BBQ and raced the taxi team to the restaurant on an overcrowded tram.
The tram team won.
We rounded out the week with the first attempts at Demo Day presentations on our Friday presentation day. The teams are starting to get the format down and the message that they are trying to deliver.
I walked them through the flow of a prefect presentation for Demo Day: one that has contrasts (between what is and what could be or between good and evil, etc) as well as a clear start, middle, and finish (call to action) with clear turning points. This is called a sparkline of a presentation. We had the whole room try to guess each presentation’s turning points as well as their call to action (last part). The presentations are getting there. Stay tuned…
