After the first Husky Den, you will be asked to upload a 1-2-minute video to YouTube highlighting your specific business idea. Please make sure to set the video to public so that it can be accessed by our selection committee. Videos that are set to private or password protected will be disregarded. In this video submission, you will be asked to answer these questions:

2. What are your core competencies? (What are you passionate about? What is something you do better than most that is hard to replicate?)

3. What is your specific business idea and model?

4. Identify your potential customers. What is your market segmentation?
