Pitch Perfect: The Art of Telling Your Startup Story
Jul 24 @ 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Description

A powerful narrative is essential to help tell your venture’s story to customers, partners, investors and anyone else you need to persuade!

This Leap Lab will help you:

  • Apply principles of storytelling to craft a compelling pitch
  • Practice your pitch and receive feedback
  • Gather and structure the info you need to effectively engage with investors and customers
  • Learn effective communication strategies

Come join EDGE mentors and fellow aspiring entrepreneurs to get feedback on your pitch and have your questions answered. You’ll also be able to network, make connections and brainstorm with like-minded colleagues on how to develop a strong pitch.

This lab involves pre-session work that we’ll send your way closer to the session date.
