In addition to the basics (i.e. citing your sources, punctuation, grammar, aesthetics of the powerpoint), below is the scale for consideration when making your presentation:

Objective: Take what you’ve learned in the class, make up a business, and sell me a product/the value proposition of the product/service/etc. your business is selling!
Make a new business from scratch! Pitch the business via PowerPoint as if we were on an episode of Shark Tank. Draw from the multiple lessons we’ve learned over the course of the class to help guide what you must include in your pitch (Shark Tank usually focuses on the financials, but since it is a made up business, you must include the other facets of the company as well). Basically, make a new business and tell me why I should invest.
Use what you’ve learned over the course and I will be utilizing that as a benchmark for grading – example of saying how you will market, identifying your target market/audience, and so forth.
Grades will be based on thoroughness of answers, clarity, and conciseness, since it is a business pitch. In addition to the basics (i.e. citing your sources, punctuation, grammar, aesthetics of the PowerPoint), below is the scale for consideration when making your presentation:
A: I am left with 0-1 questions after reading the slide deck. As a potential investor, all of my concerns have been ameliorated as a result of your excellent presentation.
B: I am left with 2-4 questions after reading the slide deck.
C: I am left with 5-6 questions after reading your slide deck.
D: I am left with 7-10 questions after reading your slide deck.
F: I am left with 11+ questions after reading your slide deck.
