A 2-hour workshop designed to teach both aspiring and current entrepreneurs and business owners how to create an engaging Pitch and Story!

Program Description:


The first steps for your startup are clear: You have an idea, you are founding your company, you are building your product and you need a pitch deck. Why is a pitch important? As long as you want to gain customers, expand awareness of your business, raise funding or convince business partners to work with you, a pitch deck is essential. It gives investors and customers insight into your business. Even huge companies like Facebook and Google started with a pitch deck. Your pitch is the heart of all of your messaging and conversations about your brand.

In this 2-hour workshop put on by Venture Cafe New England at the Roxbury Innovation Center, you will learn exactly what you need communicate about yourself and your business, by constructing a comprehensive and compelling pitch for your idea or small business! This workshop is designed to teach early stage entrepreneurs and business owners how to properly organize a pitch to obtain grant and investor funding.
