From Idea to Plan to Pitch
After the sign-up period we’ll host a Kick-off event for the program.
During the 4-week duration, teams will work independently to develop their ideas and map the way to a viable product.
Use mentors’ guidance and input to complete the picture and answer your critical questions.
Build your presentation, describing the idea and detailing the way you would make it a reality.
Finally, pitch to the panel of judges, convince them of the impact and innovation of your idea and your plan

Final team assignment (after kickoff event) 21/05
Teams will receive weekly meetings with different expert mentors (3 total). These meetings are opportunities for the team to learn and receive input on what works and what needs work.
Mentors will focus on the business and operational sides of your pitch. Their goal is to help you understand what it takes for the product to get made and paid for.
The Pitch and Points
At the grand finale teams will pitch their idea with a short presentation (or “pitch-deck”, example below).
Our panel of expert judges will evaluate and score each team based on these 3 criteria:
Impact – does this idea or product create change? Has the team convinced us this is meaningful to the lives of their customers?
Innovation – how confident are we this is hypothetically possible? Has the team shown scientific foundation and research in this direction?
Investment – how likely is this to be a good investment? Has the team shown they understand the problem, the market and their target customers?
Questions & Guidance
Teams are free to consult with your local BrainstormIL chapter coordinators at any time during the month.
General and technical questions can be sent to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, recurring questions will be added to the FAQ section below
Example Pitch Template
Your pitch deck should reflect your work and provide answers to the questions mentioned above.
Below is an outline to give you an idea of what slides and information should be included.
Remember the deck is only part of your presentation, how you communicate your idea and plan are just as important!
Q: What kind of ideas and products fit this event?
A: Anything Neuroscience or Neurotech related! VR, Bio-feedback CBT therapy service? Sure. Brain-computer interface control of warehouse robots? Defintely! Bracelet that changes color based on your cortisol levels? Not so much. Ice cream flavor named “Brain-Freeze”. No. Delicious, but no.
Q: How futuristic can I make my idea?
A: Your idea can be as wild as you like. However, it’s important you show it is feasible given certain assumptions and that you are able to explain those assumptions. It’s up to you to make sure the technical part of your idea is hypothetically possible (doesn’t break physics) and at least somewhat probable (in line with directions in current research)
Q: Do I have to have experience in scientific research or entrepreneurship?
A: Experience is useful but never a precondition! You should have an academic background, deep interest in neuroscience and entrepreneurship. Either way, if you think you’ll have fun and succeed you’re probably right! Sign up and see.
Q: How will we contact our mentors?
A: Each teams’ mentors contact information will be delivered after kick-off.
Q: What is the registration fee?
We believe in open science.
Participation is free.
Q: Do we have to work in English?
Teams are free to choose the language they work in (staff & mentors are fluent in both English and Hebrew).
Final presentation slides must be in English.

We would love to see your ideas become a reality one day. However, this event is above all intended to inspire creativity and provide an opportunity to gain experience. To maintain your IP rights, we do not recommend pitching an idea you are actively working on or is too similar to an idea you’d prefer to pursue individually at a later time. The Neuro-Pitch 2025 event is your chance to think of and pitch a future fantasy more than a near reality.
