Vision Conference Shark Tank presentation format overview

All four Fintech solutions will present on Thursday, August 10. The speaking time to present will be 15 minues and you will be notified of your 15 minute slot ahead of time. The slots will be comprised of a value proposition presentation and demo.


During the presentation, you will have 15 minutes to clearly articulate the value your Fintech solution provides credit unions, including features and benefits of your solution and demo. We also recommend you highlight applicable use cases for which credit unions cans use your solution. We will have a confidence monitor with a countdown clock run by the presenters. When your allotted 15 minutes of presentation time is complete, you will need to conclude your presentation so we can transition to the next solution.

Content guidelines

  • Communicate what your solution does, benefits to the member, and benefits to the credit union in a clear and concise manner.
  • Practice ahead of time as fifteen minutes will go fast.
  • Provide information on your research, technical detail, integration capabilities/dependencies and ease of use/branding. Per our advisory group they want to see functionally and technically understand how it works from a member experience perspective.
  • Feel free to have one person present and another team member operate the demo.
  • Allow a little time for Q&A.
