Masterclass #5 – Pitching Your Startup, 6 Dec 2018
6 December, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am$25
Your pitch could make or break your business. Investors take interest in the entrepreneur, not just the business, so your pitch must prove you’re capable, efficient, and able to sustain the project into future growth. Storytelling is the best way to make your pitch unforgettable. With the right story, you can convey all critical information, capture a room’s attention, and attract investors.
It’s important to target your pitch. Not all investors are interested in the same thing, so do your investor research. Memorising your pitch doesn’t mean being able to deliver it smoothly and naturally. Practice your pitch in front of a test audience until it flows naturally and incorporate their questions and concerns into your pitch.
Here’s a quick taste of some of the topics we’ll discuss:
- Succinctly defining a market problem—and your solution to it
- Condensing your entire business concept into a ten-minute pitch
- Preparing for any questions and criticisms from investors
- Personal presentation, including attire, stance, and voice
This workshop is for entrepreneurs and startups who want to:
- Learn how to package your business concept within a pitch
- Attract investors to your business
- Walk away with the knowledge to develop their own high-quality pitch
