Pitch Deconstruction – Getting into the details of your Pitch
January 16 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10.00
On the Startup Journey, the Pitch is a key part of engagement between the Startups and outside investors. The Elevator Pitch, the 5 minute pitch, everyone on your team needs to be able to make a credible pitch about the company and what you are doing.
As a part of any Angel Group, a startup may end up pitching multiple times. Frequently, there is little feedback about the pitch. The Startup does not get to hear the conversation about what the investors were concerned about.
In the Pitch Deconstruction, any of the companies that come will get a chance to give a 1 minute pitch. There will be a active Investors at the event, and they will provide general feedback to all of the 1 minute pitches.
The audience will vote for the ones that they would like to hear more from, and those winners (typically 5-6) will then give a 3 minute pitch.
The one minute pitches should not include slides. The 3 minute pitches are able to use a slide deck.
Know a company that needs to get more clarity about what the investors are hearing when they listen to their pitch? Please invite them to come to this workshop.
