Crafting an Elevator Pitch that Doesn't Suck is an intensive workshop for entrepreneurs and entrepreneur wannabes who want their pitch to be remembered.
Why do you need this class? Because like most entrepreneurs, your pitch sucks...
Signs That Your Pitch Sucks
The first half of the class is a lecture on the mechanics of an effective pitch, both written and verbal. The second half is a hands-on practice and critique session where students pitch their ideas to each other and ultimately the whole class, receiving feedback and pointers throughout the process.
The goal of this class is for each student to leave with:
Entrepreneur. Founder & CEO, SpeakerText. Co-Founder & CEO, Humanoid. Raised over $1MM in venture capital from Google Ventures, Mitch Kapor, 500 Startups and others. Previously, Matt worked as a journalist for the New York Times.
I've been there, I've done that, but I'm not so accomplished that I forget what it's like to be starting out for the first time.
