today I went to do a 3 minutes pitch in a portuguese sharktank and it was so much better than I could hope for! okay, they did dismiss me in less than 5 minutes total, while they did stay with other people in there for over 10 minutes, but this was basically their feedback:
"you're either insane or a genius, we have no clue what's your product"
"we're too dumb to understand what you're talking about" - to which I immediately replied something like "no, I'm pretty sure I'm the fucktard who can't explain it right" and they laughed.
"bring us a prototype" - this was a hint from my friend who was in the jury there (if not for her, I wouldn't be writing this post here). I was a bit surprised and quickly said "here, it's in my pocket. want to see?". "no, just apply it online. maybe we'd still call you"
now I need to get this ready ASAP! (the application pdf needs to be completely remade, of course)
Can you help me out?
it's already clear the video has to show a prototype (even if it doesn't exist yet, because it's not complete - just in beta) and it has to show the scientific evidence supporting the claim, which needs to be researched online and compiled.
PS: if you don't know about shark tank
