The description of the company
There will be a summary on the events website of all the JA companies in the Uskalla Yrittää final.
Every participating JA company must deliver a short description of what the company does and what makes it interesting for the summary not later than 4.4.2018. The purpose is not to write the business plan all over again for everyone to see, rather a brief description of the business idea.
Deliver the company’s logo in PNG, JPG or JPEG -form at the same time. Return the description and information with the form below.
A picture of the company (team)
One category in the final competition is the best presence in social media. In this competition the JA companies collect likes for their own picture. Nuori Yrittäjyys ry publishes a photo album on Facebook. The album introduces all the finalists and it is published on 6.4.2018 and it is possible to like until 18.4.2018 at 23:59.
The companies have to deliver a group photo of the team for the competition not later than 4.4.2018.
Company business presentation
Every JA company has a four minute long business presentation in the final. If the presentation is supported with PowerPoint or a similar presentation (Prezi, Sway) must the presentation be sent to the event team not later than 12.4.2018. In this way we can make sure that the presentations open up and function on the computer properly. If there is any problems there is still time to fix them before the event.
The fonts used in the PowerPoint presentations should be the regular fonts on Windows so the presentations function properly on the computers used in the final.
The presentation must be either compatible with the Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2016 -program or a PDF-file. If you want to use another format please contact the event team in time. The maximum size of the file is 20 MB. The files are returned primarily with the return form below.
NOTE! The presentations are held in English so the presentation must also be in English.
Company pitch deck
Before the event, you need to create a Pitch Deck. See the judging criteria, demo template and real example below.
- Pitch_deck_Criteria_2018_JA Finland
- Pitch Deck_demo template_2018 (+ explications of what to fill in)
- Example of a real company Pitch Deck, founded by JA Alumni. (Some sensitive information is removed)
Demo and example can help you to create your own Pitch deck. Creating a Pitch deck is not a science, so there are no definite right or wrong answer, but rather set of norms that investors are usually looking for.
