Climate-X Sprint Frequently Asked Questions How long do I have to pitch my idea on the first day? You've got one minute to pitch your idea so make every second count. We've got some tips to help you make the most of your 60 seconds. Can I pitch an idea I've already done some work on? No, but well researched and vetted ideas are welcome. Can I pitch more than one idea? No, pick your best idea and do your best pitch. What if my idea isn't selected? Join another team - remember, it's not just about the idea. There's plenty of opportunity to learn and contribute as part of another team. Can I still work on my idea if it isn't selected? Yes, ONLY if you have at least three other people join you (no lone wolves). Can I use props or slides when I pitch? Props are okay but slides are not - remember keep it short! What about my intellectual property? It's probably better out than in. How big are the teams? It may vary event to event but typically a team consists of between four and eight people.
