Assessment 3
Business Pitch 
Task Description:
This is a group assignment that builds on the work completed in Assessment 2.
It allows your group/team to showcase the business idea identified by the group as the "best one" during workshops earlier in the unit. The objective of Assessment 3 is to refine student's business concept development and presentation skills, including what it takes to explain and pitch an idea for a new business venture. It will allow students to appreciate that potential investors take the investment process seriously and will not commit to a project without first scrutinising it carefully.
While working on Assessment 2, your group/team should have identified an innovative business idea that has the best chance of securing a high proportion of a potential investment, assumed to a maximum of $100,000.
In summary, there are two parts to Assessment 3. The first requires everyone in the team to present the idea and sell the proposed business venture to an 'investor'. The second involves the group/team providing a portfolio of materials (three items) that supports the pitch together with the ‘team charter’ that has guided the performance of the group/team. Each of these is detailed below:
The Pitch
1. Make a 2-minute pitch, which succinctly describes the important aspects of the business concept and the business model to be used.
2. Each team member presents their aspect of the pitch in no more than 4-minutes.
3. Where appropriate, showcase the portfolio of materials to support the presentation
4. The pitch should be structured to include the following:
a) Comprehensive description of the proposed venture idea and underlying business model
) A high-level discussion of the business case, including: the problem solved; how the idea is monetised; financial feasibility( please do only highlighted part because this is only my part. For pitch please write the script for around 500 words .) , operational feasibility; and the the scope and scalability of the idea for commercialisation.
c) What you are seeking from the investo
d) What you are offering in return
Portfolio of Materials and Team Charte
The group/team must submit three of the following as part of a portfolio of materials in support of the business idea pitched by the group/team:
1. Description and justification of the innovation process used
2. Cash flow projections and Income Statement for the first two years
3. Short video or animated PowerPoint that explains and sells the business idea to potential investors and customers
4. A draft website (maximum six pages) that explains and sells the business idea to potential investors and customers
5. An example of a blog or newsletter or similar communication that explains and sell the business idea to potential investors and customers
6. A 2-page plan/outline that explains how social media will be used
7. A related application software
8. A short
ochure in pdf
9. A prototype of the product
10. A schematic or simulation of the planned service offering
11. Any other item/aspect that demonstrates a key aspect of the product/service you want to develop and which will persuade investors to fund your project.
For portfolio you can choose any one topic. Only one portfolio is need for my part thanks.

Proposed Business Venture
Business financial feasibility
The business proposed is sure to lure the investors. The analysis of financial feasibility reveals that business has good potential to offer benefits to stakeholders. Thus, the elements of financial feasibility analysis are analysed. For this purpose payback period and the
eakeven point are analysed.
Breakeven point    
Office tools and equipment cost-4500 dollars
Insurance cost- 6000 dollars
Lease of building cost- 18000 dollars
Cost of utilities- 4800 dollars
Total cost- 33300 dollars
Variable cost
Per unit production cost- $5.95
Packaging and labour cost per unit- 6.65 dollars
Production cost- 40000 dollars
First year total sale- 7010
The variable cost of first year- 280488326 dollars
Total sales
560888326 dollars
Breakeven point
Calculation of the variable cost to the net sale
280488326/560888326- 0.5000787376
Variable cost remainder obtained by subtraction of variable cost percentage
1. 00000 – 0.5000787376 = 0.4999212624
Fixed cost amount is divided by the variable cost remainde
33500/ 0.4999212624 = $ 67010
Q    A
    C
    Variable cost
Cost line P 67010 dollars
Breakeven point

Income line Loss Profit Fixed cost

Thus the
eakeven point is $67010 for the company to reach and afterwards the company will offer benefits to the investors.
Payback period
Payback period is obtained by subtracting the initial investment to annual cash flow. The initial investment is obtained by adding fixed cost and variable...
