Pitch Deck Karaoke is an unforgettable happy hour improv game where you pitch an audience without knowing the contents of your deck. It’s a game that tests your skills, gets people laughing, and keeps everyone wondering what will happen next.
After the pitches the crowd and judges will vote on winners and prizes will be handed out. Bring your friends and coworkers for drinks for a very unique event at the top of Seattle.
Additionally, we’re excited to have Christina Brennan (https://www.linkedin.com/in/brennanchristina/) and Jeremy Diamond (https://www.linkedin.com/in/jerdiamond/) presenting on what makes an effective pitch and how to successfully communicate you points to an audience.
Christina Brennan has coached over 200 startup founders and entrepreneurs on their pitch through Founders Live, 1 Million Cups, and her quarterly workshop – Practice Your Pitch. Her specialty is identifying value/impact and success stories that will win over any audience.
Jeremy Diamond works with early-stage startups on everything short of engineering. He has a particular facility with pitch decks — he writes occasionally about them at startupdeckreview.com (https://startupdeckreview.com/). Since 2016, he has worked with founders to raise more than $5 million in angel and seed capital.
