Seconding Al and Jeff’s points…we used Slack on the back end. It was key for communication and dealing with any tech/team issues.
Abigail Durmaz
39:04
We also use slack (as back channel) or set up a group message with all the staff to communicate versus the Zoom chat.
Debra Jonasson-Young
39:28
Interested in hearing what kind of support you might have requested from service providers such as Zoom and Start up Tree to help you understand and run the logistics of a competition.
Elaine Hagan
40:15
We have purchased some of our IT staff's time to staff major events - it has been worth every penny!

Al Bartosic-Fordham
41:04
We used our student interns to help us figure it out. Used Zoom for live pitching and judging and streamed on YouTube.
Wen Teoh
42:14
We used Zoom. To save bandwidth, we only allowed the presenting team, judges and staff on Zoom. The competition is streamed on Facebook where we direct audience, including non-presenting teams to Facebook to watch
Nancy Hong
42:26
LOL - That is creative.
David Lange
42:31
Wen, that’s exactly what we’re trying tomorrow!
Utkarsh Gupta
42:35
Lol..
David Lange
42:38

It worked well for us

Wen Teoh
42:49
And free
Krystal Lee
42:58
We also used Slack on the back end. Used Zoom for the live pitches and only invited speakers to the room. Everyone else was invited to watch he YouTube live stream. We used meeting sift (http://meetingsift.com/) to engage the audience watching at home, which I highly recommend!!
Al Bartosic-Fordham
43:03
Wen, thats what we did too
Utkarsh Gupta
43:13
https://www.linkedin.com/in/utkarshgupta8/
Liana Gonzalez
43:14
Do students still use Facebook?
Marina Masini - Santa Clara University
43:15
We did the same, Wen! Only the active presenting team, judges, and our staff were on the zoom. Others watched the webcast. And we had the waiting room function on zoom to manage who was coming on and when.
Al Bartosic-Fordham
43:16
Worked well but we used YouTube rather than FB
George Rhone
43:25
With regards to the pitch vids, would you all save them and share your screen?
Wen Teoh
43:52
The reason we use Facebook so that the competition can stay on Facebook page forever, another benefit to keep promoting ourselves and our competition
Shelly Brenckman
44:10
One of my students has created a great Zoom extension that your faculty and students may be interested in using. It is free and simple, more than 8,000 students at Texas A&M University, Harvard and Baylor have downloaded it. The extension automatically updates all of your class, organization and meeting Zoom links, offers push notifications and plays nice with two-factor authentication. The student has mer with two Billionaire investors in the last week who want to roll out this solution globally as a way to help more people. If your competition involves multiple team meetings or workshops, this may be a great lifehack! https://zoomutils.com
Al Bartosic-Fordham
44:19
Same with our YouTube channel…we edited the zoom feed and then posted afterward
Jolene Cardassi
44:32
We had a great seamless live event last April.
Chris James Carter
44:52
We’ve used Adobe Connect with great support from an events team, which has worked really well in terms of them being able to pull people into the right places at the right times!
Oliver England
44:53
Do you have any advice on how you drive attendance for your pitch competitions?
Bethany Allen
44:54
We had all students present live. It worked very well. By the way, we did not need to change hosts for others to present during the event.
Cathy Ogur - Venture Lab, The Wharton School
44:54
We used BlueJeans Events for the public webcast of our Finals, and BlueJeans Meetings for our Semifinals (live Q&A to rooms of judges, which were not webcast). BlueJeans is similar to Zoom. We also used Slack as a backchannel to communication between staff and teams. We did provide prerecorded pitches to semis judges before live Q&A.

We recorded it and put a full broadcast out and made a promo video from feedback videos. We also added a poll for fan favorite
MIT: Greg Wymer
45:38
1. Think of your event as a TV show because that’s basically what it is to your audience.
Corina Forascu
45:49
thanks, Shelly! Great tip with zoomutils! And yes…. so nice to see old GCEC friends!
Bethany Allen
46:02
^agree with Greg
Kathy Wyatt

Tracy Lea
46:13
I agree with Greg as well!
MIT: Greg Wymer
46:19
2. It was 100% pre-recorded, but we didn’t tell people that was the case. And with 100s engaging in the chat with comments it FELT like a live event. Great energy
Abi Durmaz, Brown University
46:27
Curious to know how you manage live feedback from judges logistically?
Shorouq Almallah
46:28
Anyone did a poster or a business showcase event virtually?
Ahlea Isabella
46:35
Agreed with Greg! We added drum roll and applause sound effects for our competition!

Hopin does a business showcase nicely
MIT: Greg Wymer
47:03
Also it
Stephen Daze
47:08
Does anyone have experience with using hopin.to?
Kelly Reardon-Sleicher
47:15
The upside of all this online activity is that we are creating awesome content to be used elsewhere for promotional purposes. I have taught myself how to edit videos this summer. I'm now editing content weekly.
Shelly Brenckman
47:17
Howdy, Corina!!! Nice to “see” you too!
Krystal Lee
47:21
When we hold our event in person, we have a networking reception to fill the time while the judges deliberate. When we moved online, we used that dead air time to showcase our accelerator teams. It turned out being great exposure for them!
Al Bartosic-Fordham
47:28
Speaking of sound…be careful and broadcast rights. We tried to use a Spotify feed to provide music during the breaks and YouTube shut the feed down as the music was “unlicensed”
MIT: Greg Wymer
47:54
Also you should give your students both pitch practice and tips for how to record their presentation. Lighting, angle of the computer, sound, background. It makes SUCH a difference in the end product.
Cheri Soliday
48:00
Another vote to have access to the transcript of this chat.

Taysha Williams
49:42
How did you do the people's choice award? Was that a poll?
John Stavig
49:42
MN Cup used Zoom for all live judging rounds (230 judges loved it!) and we livestreamed awards event this Tuesday from campus via YouTube. https://carlsonschool.umn.edu/mn-cup
Cathy Ogur - Venture Lab, The Wharton School
49:51
Also with live voting - be careful of using a method to verify users depending on how you vote. We had an issue with a person using Amazon Turk to pay people to vote for them.
Bethany Allen
50:00
You can also highlight people in zoom as they win
Sam Carpenter - Dartmouth
50:08
Seconding Taysha’s question on people’s choice award and polling
MIT: Greg Wymer
50:17
Because we didn’t have to pay for catering for 1000+ people we spent some of that $ on shipping our presenters mics, 4k webcams, and light rings
Libby Santin
50:42
How do you handle questions from the judges with pre-recorded pitches?
MIT: Greg Wymer
50:46
Was about $500 x 15 teams
Marina Masini - Santa Clara University
51:11
Did anyone deal with judge fatigue in a live format? We put a break into the presentations for them to take a break, but it was still a long event for them.
Jeff Reid - Georgetown
51:25
A recording of this - and all - GCEC webinars can be found here http://www.globalentrepreneurshipconsortium.org/virtualconnections/ We will upload this video in a few days.
Aubrey Haase - Michigan State

Seconding Libby’s comment on how to handle questions from judges with pre-recorded pitches
Jolene Cardassi
51:32
https://www.linkedin.com/in/the-dyer-center-for-innovation-and-entrepreneurship-3b6885183/
Bethany Allen
51:44
We had a live version and there was no fatigue. Ours was not a whole day event though.
Cheri Soliday
51:49
@Greg/MIT - great way to pivot funds to help improve quality of presentation.
Alyssa Martina
52:02
Did anyone do a social innovation competition?
Kelly Reardon-Sleicher
52:03
That's awesome! re: swag box
MIT: Greg Wymer
52:11
For our pre-recorded event, it’s a Demo Day not a competition so not applicable in our case
Bethany Allen
52:22
We have a Social competition (March 2021, this year)
Ahlea Isabella
52:32
@alysssa, we have a social impact track in our competition
Cheri Soliday
52:34
Swag bag great idea, too. Sort like they do for the Academy Awards :-)
MIT: Greg Wymer
52:37
@Cheryl - and great bonus for our student teams. Better than a backpack
Alyssa Martina
52:48
Are you doing your social innovation competitions virtually this year?
Tong Meng
52:48
We do pre-recorded pitches + live Q&A.
Al Bartosic-Fordham
52:49
Marina — we used different judges for different rounds, so no one judge was on zoom for more than an hour or so…Did our first rounds asynchronously with different judges.
Priscilla James
53:05
What have been the platforms for live audience voting?
Phoebe Punzalan
53:08
We’ve been using Streamyard, which looks much more polished than Zoom and offers some neat bells and whistles. Price is very reasonable as well.
Jeff Reid - Georgetown
53:23
https://eship.georgetown.edu/designchallenge/
Cathy Ogur - Venture Lab, The Wharton School
53:56
For our People's Choice voting - we used Qualtrics.
Abi Durmaz, Brown University
54:18
How do you manage live Q&A with students and judges? Did you find that judges talk over each other a lot? Did you find a way to avoid this?
Krystal Lee
54:23
just be aware that when you live stream, there’s a delay from what’s happening in zoom and what folks are watching at home. make sure you leave enough time for any audience voting.
Cathy Ogur - Venture Lab, The Wharton School
54:43
At our in-person events previously, we used Poll Everywhere.
Phoebe Punzalan
54:53
For audience choice, we use DirectPoll, which provides both a link that people can enter into their browsers and also a QR code for those with QR scanners on their phones.
John Stavig
55:03
Poll Everywhere, with Facebook as backup
Priscilla James
55:04
A virtual showcase would be a great component. If only there was a seamless method
Emily Bear
55:08
for our people's choice - we had participants record a 60 sec video and upload it to Woobox, then the audience voted via Woobox. It integrates with Facebook
Diane Childers
55:10
For live Q&A with judges, we designate the order of judges questions for each pitch and list it on the Google sheets.
Bethany Allen
55:12
We had judges type in their questions in the zoom chat and then had a moderator read or mention the judges' questions. That worked well and kept us on time.

Juliet Zimmer
55:43
For our showcase on YouTube Live we did our shortlisted 16 teams and presented them in 4 groups of 4 and the winner of each set went on to a final voting round (all via polleverywhere) - this way the first pitch wasn't completely forgotten by voting
Juliet Zimmer
55:56
And hello everyone! Juliet from University of San Diego's Center of Peace and Commerce: https://www.linkedin.com/in/juliet-zimmer-07a47731/
Bethany Allen
56:40
We also had a person moderate the FB page and ask any questions from that platform as well (through the back channel).
MIT: Greg Wymer
57:01
To what Carol said, initial run-throughs and tech checks are CRITICAL to make sure your live event runs smoothly.
MIT: Greg Wymer
57:09
Learn the hiccups when no one is watching.
Regan O'Donnell
57:14
For teams who have done swag bags, how would you manage to get those delivered with a virtual event? Sounds like a great idea, but logistically seems a tough at the moment
Emily Bear
57:17
we only had the judges and participants in the Zoom meeting so the judges could ask questions on camera - but we live streamed the meeting to Facebook where the audience could make comments/ask questions. Had someone monitoring the FB live
Tong Meng
58:29
We didn’t run into the issue this April. Maybe because we only had 4 judges, and one moderator. We did 8 min video pitch + 8 min Q&A.
Alyssa Martina
59:21
Would you use students as moderators or faculty/staff or both?
Emily Bear
59:36
yes, moderators are so important. we had Zoom breakout rooms and 1-2 monitors in each room then someone out in the main room who could jump around.
Tong Meng
59:44
Staff, in our case.
Emily Bear
59:52
we used student interns/GA's and a couple staff

Kelli Gradin- CSB/SJU McNeely Center for Entrepreneurship
01:01:20
We hire an alum from our program as our host. He happens to also be a comedian, which adds another level to our host/moderator.
Diane Childers
01:01:27
We use individual Google sheets for scoring and then link these to an aggregate score sheet that accumulates scores.
John Surdyk
01:01:29
LOL consensus is satisfying for everyone involved but also time-consuming!
Alyssa Martina
01:02:35
Did any of you integrate Design Thinking principles in your virtual event???
Bethany Allen
01:03:02
We used it to market future events. Through slides, short videos, etc.
Cathy Ogur - Venture Lab, The Wharton School
01:03:14
We held an alumni panel after the Finals pitches to fill the time before Awards.
Alyssa Martina
01:03:31
An alumni panel for down time is a great idea!
Kelly Reardon-Sleicher
01:03:33
reviewing the scores with the judges before the winners are announced is THE BEST part of the competition for me. Sometimes when I show them how their scoring panned out, it starts a discussion amongst them that can result in reordering of winners.
John Stavig
01:03:43
Zoom polling and re-polling (and sometimes re-polling) helped judging groups of up to 20 develop consensus winners
Cathy Ogur - Venture Lab, The Wharton School
01:03:49
We also filled downtime (lunch, breaks) with a presentation about our other programs.
Julian Olanbiwonnu
01:03:53
At Bowie State, between each pitch, we left 2 minutes for judges to score and then during that time, we presented awards to faculty who have made an impact to our program. Then at the end, we talked about the Entrepreneurship Academy and other activities we had. We also have asked questions for give aways (gift cards). There was never a dull moment!
Cathy Ogur - Venture Lab, The Wharton School
01:03:56
The alumni panel was a big hit... :)
Lottie Byram
01:04:10
We held a "half-time show" during Judge Deliberation that was very entertaining and had a game show feel to keep people entertained
Sam Carpenter - Dartmouth
01:04:36
Lottie - what content was in the half time show?
Diane Childers
01:04:56
Yes - would love to hear about the half time show content.

Jessica Cooley
01:05:38
Create short pre-recorded videos to showcase competition alumni or videos with your students thanking your donors.
Lottie Byram
01:06:17
Sam - it was a silly set of questions about entrepreneurship for the audience to answer, and each correct answer gave you a number. The more questions you got right, the more numbers.... until you had all the numbers for the phone number to call! The first person who called the phone number won a small prize. This way the whole audience could compete without creating a lot of noise.
Kelly Reardon-Sleicher
01:06:32
@jessica - great idea
Alyssa Martina
01:06:33
What is the average length of time for your virtual competitions???
MIT: Greg Wymer
01:06:33
There are a lot of out of work standups who might be willing to do a 5-10 minute set while the judges deliberate. Years back the MIT $100K hired an improv team to fill this dead space.
Wen Teoh
01:06:36
We have switched to based on score only for a couple of reasons:
Sam Carpenter - Dartmouth
01:06:51
Thanks, Lottie!
Al Bartosic-Fordham
01:06:56
We do both. Judges had google sheets that they scored during the pitches. Then put the judges into a breakout room and had aggregated the scores and ranked the companies. We then did a “gut check” consensus deliberation to allow voices to be heard.
Lottie Byram
01:06:57

1) prevent more dominant judges influence others; 2) for fairness in case teams asked how it was decided

Our moderator for five pitch competitions and also one of our coaches from 2012-2019 is Chris Westfall in Houston, a TCU MBA and former professor, author and corporate executive coach. He has coaches for our Vet School, College of Agriculture, College of Engineering and at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, aside from SMU, TCU, Geekdom, Station Houston, etc. He is a regular senior leadership coach for NASA and the Navy Seals. Great at impromptu gap-filling during tech glitches. https://westfallonline.com

One other tip: try to keep your intros and closing comments as short as possible while still honoring your sponsors and hosts - the teams are what everyone wants to see and hear

At EWU, we do hold judges deliberations to work towards consensus on selecting winners. To balance the influence of strong personalities on the judging panel, we always assign an independent chair who is not a judge. The role of that individual is to manage conversational dynamics and to make sure everyone has an opportunity to participate in a balanced manner. If consensus is impossible, we lean a bit on majority rules at the end of the day. So far, many events and no problems

If you use YouTube/FB Live, you need to make sure whoever’s Zoom is hooked up to the feed is controlling the shots that are shown (Gallery view, spotlight, speaker view etc..). Also there is a time lag between feed and Zoom so you can get into a feedback loop (about 3 second delay or so)
