Samples of Video Pitches and Business Summaries submitted by past Montana Teenpreneurs

Examples of top-scoring Video Pitches

We are making available the following Video Pitches as examples of the wide range of video production capabilities that were submitted by four of last year's winners. As you will see, some Video Pitches were highly produced while others were simply a PowerPoint with a voice recording and a video taken on a smartphone. Showing you these Video Pitches does not mean our judges thought they were perfect. Rather, our judges believed the Video Pitch component of these submissions scored well on our Evaluation Rubric.

Examples of top-scoring Business Summaries

We are also making available the Business Summaries that were written by last year's 1st Place winners. Again, our judges did not necessarily believe these were perfect Business Summaries. Rather, our judges believed they scored well on our Evaluation Rubric.

Click on the hyperlinked business name to watch these four Video Pitches. Then, click on the hyperlinked Business Summary to read what was submitted by our 1st Place winners. While watching the videos and reading the summaries, consider referring to the Evaluation Rubric to begin planning your Video Pitch and Business Summary.
