It’s just a case for 30 min. They will get straight to it without wasting time. 3 things they will looks for 1. Structure- try to go broad and deep 2. Math- numbers should be right 3. Creativity- they’ll ask you to come up with ideas for ex: to increase rev. Make sure you have 5-8 solid ones Hope this helps.
