Pitch deconstruction with Javier Soto, Elaine Werfelli and Yoko Okano

January 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


On the Startup Journey, the pitch is a key part of engagement between a startup and investors. Everyone on the team needs to be able to make a credible and succinct pitch about the startup and what you’re doing.

Frequently, startups receive little feedback about the pitch from investors or angel groups. The startup does not get feedback about what was missing, what the investors were concerned about, or even what came across clearly.

During this Pitch Deconstruction workshop, any of the companies that come will have the chance to give their 1-minute pitch. The audience will then vote for who they would like to hear more from, and those winners (typically 5-6) will then give 3-minute pitches. Note: The 1-minute pitches should not include slides. The 3-minute pitches can include a slide deck.

We’ll have active investors at the event to provide general feedback to all of these 1-minute pitches and more direct feedback for the 3-minute pitches.

Do you know a company that would find it useful to get more clarity about what investors are hearing when they listen to their pitch? Please invite them to come to this workshop.
