10:00 pm - 11:00 pm Pitch Practice: Pitch Decks
Welcome to the next step in our Pitch Practice Sessions where we'll now be focusing on Pitch Decks.Like the elevator pitch, this too is a critical skill for helping new audiences learn about, and gain interest in your company. This is a fundamental skill for entrepreneurs and something that you'll be doing a lot whether you're fundraising, looking to form critical partnerships, or competing in pitch competitions. Having a strong pitch deck in your back pocket is a powerful tool and something you'll be sharing with people who want to learn more about your business at a deeper level.
This is also important practice as you prepare to present your company at our next Startup Showcase! And for those of you who are just getting started I strongly recommend Guy Kawasaki's 10 slide deck template.
Everyone is strongly encouraged to join and practice presenting their 5 minute pitch deck with the group. All attendees will have the opportunity to practice their elevator pitch, receive feedback from the group, and get practice in a safe and friendly environment.
We'll be hosting these practice sessions twice a week for the next 3 weeks. Join as many as you can to maximize your proficiency at the art of the pitch!
Mikhail Holst is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
