TODAY: WRAP UP DETAILS

Hey Fashion Hackers,

Listen up - I got lots of answers about today right below:

1. DID YOU REGISTER YOUR TEAM?

That's the first step of being an official participant of the hackathon. You should do this step early. Each member needs to visit CHALLEGE POST here, add him or herself and then simply register the team. This will also guarantee yoru spot on the pitch cue.

2. IS CHALLENGE POST PROFILE BEING JUDGED AND WHAT TIME IS IT DUE?

No, on this hacakthon. In New York, this was really important sicne we ended up with over 70 apps to judge. But EVERYONE will have a chance to pitch tomorrow to a packed room. I know I said 12-noon as deadline. But please know that we have now changed to 1PM. However - submission

3. HOW LONG IS THE PITCH?

What about FOUR WHOLE minutes? It's double the time the teams has in NY! So, make good use of it!!!

4. CAN WE DO A MIX OF DEMO & PRESENTATION OR JUST DECK?

Yes. Whataver you fancy!

5. WHAT HAPPENS TOMORROW?
Tomorrow, we will pick 5 top ideas. Those teams will have one more day to relax, reharse, work on the product. They will pitch to top fashion judges at the Decoded Fashion Summit on Tuesday morning. What to see the winning pitches from last year? Click here.

6. WHO ARE THE JUDGES TOMORROW?

Condé Nast International, Shazad Awan
NET-A-PORTER, Sarah Watson

6. TRAINING FOR A WINING PITCH:

I will be running reharsal pitches at the judging room 10:30am to noon tomorrow. The judging room is first room you see on your left, in the hallway before you enter the big common area.

7. SAVE IT LATER - A COMMON THEME

If your value prop is browse an item, and save it to buy later - beware that it's a common theme at this hackathon. Have a VERY clear vision and ramp up your delivery to differentiate.

8. HOW DO I FIND LIZ?
