This assessment is an opportunity to present your Group Venture Plan (Assessment 3) to an audience of potential investors or perhaps an investment committee, as is often found in large organisations. It will help you to develop your ability to deliver an effective business pitch that convinces others that your idea for a business is a worthy of funding - based on sound, rational business decision making. The key objectives are to ensure the venture plan is presented with the following attributes: 1. Professional presentation materials, using either PowerPoint or Prezi 2. A consistent flow of information, from problem definition to the proposed outcomes of the venture plan, including financial rationale 3. A strong value proposition 4. A group dynamic and the communication skills necessary to present to a professional investor group

This assessment is the culmination of your learning this term and provides the opportunity for the group to demonstrate an understanding of, and ability to apply, all of the theories, concepts, and ideas.
You need to develop a dynamic, interactive group presentation that uses clear and concise language and a logical flow of ideas. The aim is to convince someone to invest money and therefore, you need to be as compelling as possible. The entire venture plan needs to be explained and all of your learning this term should be on display.
