About this event

Do you have a brilliant idea for a podcast? Apply for the Startup Grind Jacksonville Virtual Podcast Pitch Battle They are looking for the most creative, interesting and original podcast idea, which can be a success around the world. 

A podcast is an audio show, but you can download it and listen whenever you like. Podcasts are free from the restraints of traditional radio programs: they can be any length, and they often have quite a personal, intimate tone, as many people like to listen to them on their own with headphones. They can be about anything, and any format – from discussion and debates, informal chats to investigative journalism and documentaries



How to Plan, Prepare and Execute! 

Each individual or team will be required to present their pitch podcast live in front of the judges in the order that will be pre- decided by Startup grind. The teams will only be given presenter access when it is their turn to present their pitch.

Podcast Platform 

Anchor.fm should be used by the teams to pre-record their welcome episode. Here is the link to create your podcast

Here is a welcome episode example: https://open.spotify.com/episode/1ll89QEzDiTeISyzfpMZZl 

How to submit: 

The teams should also submit a link which should be a welcome episode (1-2 minutes) to their podcast before the competition so that the judges already have an idea of the presented iproduct/ service and provide better feedback on every team’s pitch podcast. Deadline is Mon. August 23, 2021 by 5:00 pm EST.

Presenting your Live Pitch Podcast

The live pitch podcast should not be more than 2.5- 3 minutes and exceeding the time limit carries a penalty of 5 points for every 10 seconds.

The judges will provide feedback on each team’s pitch podcast for 3-5 minutes per team and every team would also get an opportunity to learn from the feedback that will be provided to the other teams.

Each live pitch podcast should contain:

Clear Explanation of product/ Service

Problem being solved

Proposed solution

Go to market strategy

Current status of their product/ service and a detailed plan of action for the next six months

Social aspect

How you will be scored

The judging of each team’s pitch podcast would be based on their live podcast pitch presentation but a well drafted welcome podcast episode would help in providing better clarity to the judges during the presentation
