Sunday is action day that just buzzes with excitement. All the participants are rushing to perfect their decks, rehearse for the final pitch, and get ready for their big moment.

It’s all business as teams aim to nail the presentation, WOW the judges, and most importantly, prove their idea is THE ONE and come out on top.

Again, big thanks to all our wonderful mentors for their hard work over the last 48 hours, and our lovely sponsors in making it all happen.

The count down is on - here’s a final update of our teams pitching tonight:
