One of your biggest challenges and responsibilities as a founder is pitching your product — and its complex technology — and driving in its value in a comprehensible, engaging, and impactful way, in just minutes. As your company and product evolves, it is necessary to have a dynamic approach to pitching to different types of audience in different scenarios, such as investor meetings, conferences, and client presentations.
This August, we’re bringing in Scollar CEO and founder Lisa Tamayo, winner of the Girls in Tech AMPLIFY pitch competition, to kick off the discussion on nailing your pitch. Lisa will draw from her experience as a serial entrepreneur (one of her companies was acquired in 2008), successfully raising investor funds for Scollar, and having been an angel investor for 4 years.
We will cover:
- a "6/60" strategy for building your pitch
- how to make the audience care about your message
- working through your presentation issues together
And much more!
