The Community Vote

1 company pitching at each #DSLive will be chosen by the public via Twitter & Linkedin

HOW IT WORKS

When an application is submitted and ‘opt-in’ selected, it will be automatically published on the Debut Sessions Twitter & Linkedin handles with the following information (over 2 weeks before the lead up to #DSLive) - Company URL, Company Twitter / Linkedin handle, 1 line summary, link to Deck (hosted on Airtable)

PHASE 1 - VOTING SYSTEM

Once published on Twitter / Linkedin, there will be a points system ranking the applications:

Twitter - 1 like = 1 vote & 1 retweet = 2 votes (24 hours of voting per startup)

Linkedin - 1 like = 1 vote & 1 share = 2 votes (24 hours of voting per startup)

Each startup will have 24 hours to receive votes from the community. Their votes will then be counted by the DS Team, before their pitch is then deleted from Twitter / LI Each startup will be notified by 10pm on the evening before their application goes live at 10am the next day

PHASE 2 - FINAL POLL

The total points for each company will be collected and counted on a set date published before each #DSLive

The top 6 will then be then entered into a Poll (hosted on the Debut Session Linkedin / Twitter) in the final week before #DSLive, with the winner announced a few days before #DSLive
