At the end of the day, students pitched their ideas at a mock tech conference in front of Angel Investors (played by senior staff members from BDO) who would decide whether to invest. Their ideas had to be a
fully-costed business plan to succeed.
During the day each student within their teams were assigned a variety of roles – a finance officer, a sales officer, a creative officer. According to their role within the team they had to then attend one of the following workshops: Budgeting and Investment (Finance Officer), Communication and Public Speaking (Sales Officer), Marketing and Branding (Creative Officer). This allowed them to gain an insight into the world of work that they will take with them and remember long after the event.
