Training Case Study: Startup Bootcamp

CHALLENGES/NEEDS

Startupbootcamp runs the Accelerator Programme, focusing on FinTech startups. At the end of the program, startups get to participate in demo day, where each group has 5 minutes to pitch their business to potential investors and venture capitalists. Though many of these startups had wonderful ideas, they were unable to communicate them effectively. Startupbootcamp engaged HighSpark to provide a 4-hour crash course, as well as personal consultations for each startup to help them achieve maximum results. HighSpark was also tasked to help the startups identify their unique positioning to differentiate themselves and appeal to their target audience.

Action:

We conducted a crash course to guide the startups through frameworks such as visual communications and story structures. We also provided them with case studies, and obtained feedback from the others for their pitches. During the consultations, we also saw their latest presentation drafts, and helped the groups identify areas of improvement in terms of story flow, messaging and visual design.

Results:

The groups put to use what they had learnt during the crash course, and came up with visually impactful presentations that helped them engage their target audience.

“The training helped us to ‘own’ our presentation.

I can confidently say we’re ready for Demo-Day and beyond.”
