This year, MTank will have a pre-round to let the teams get the sense of what to expect during the actual competition.

For the pre-round, 12 teams will be picked for an exclusive exposure opportunity: to pitch to the whole of MPowered!

Seven of them will then move into the final round, and will pitch to a panel of Venture Capitalists. Each startup will be given 3 minutes for their pitch. You can use props to better convey your idea and even demonstrate your product on stage!

Make your pitch unique to your product and interesting to the judges and the audience.
