Step 1. Create your short video
Your video should address the following points and include any additional material that supports your idea:
- the originality of your idea
- how your idea addresses a need in society
- clearly defined target audiences and the benefits of the innovation
- the viability of the idea and how that is communicated
- your video should be no longer than 4 minutes
For further support on creating your video please attend the following workshop:

Step 2. Create your A2 poster
Plan your content
Your poster should promote your innovation. Take time to explain why the innovation is needed, who it is aimed at, how it will impact/make a difference to the target audience/society. You won’t have a lot of space so be sure to identify the key points that you wish to present.
Include key information
Remember to Include all the key information requested by EIBC: the team leader’s name, university name and email address as well as the name of the innovation/project, and any branding you have developed.
Think about your design
As with your video, it is important that your poster is visually appealing. It is a lot easier to read and understand something if it looks good. Again, ask around your team or friends to find the best person for the design job. Above all, avoid dominating your poster with dense text. Try and be as concise as you can – summary and bullet points are your watch words!

Step 3. Create your 'Business Model Canvas'
You may have used the Business Model Canvas within your course/competition to develop your business idea. If so, you simply need to use your previous experience to prepare this for your entry. If you have not used a Business Model Canvas template before, you can refer to the guidance.
