To launch a great startup, it is critical to get feedback on your ideas from entrepreneurs who have been there and done that. First, you'll learn the best practices for creating a concise and compelling elevator pitch. Then, you will have the opportunity to share your pitch with other entrepreneurs, advisors, and investors at virtual tables for instant feedback. Even if you don't want to share your pitch, you can still join to hear other startup ideas and witness how the experts review a pitch.
What You'll Learn:

  • How to give a concise, yet compelling, elevator pitch
  • What investors are looking for in a startup pitch
  • Specific advice and feedback on your pitch and startup ideas

To get the most out of this Pitch for Feedback event:

  • Come ready for live video networking
  • Prepare by starting with your one-sentence pitch. See how it's done using our Madlibs format.
  • Fill out our Pitch Worksheet
