A classic general partner at a VC hears about 3,000 pitches a year, seriously considers about 600 of them and closes 1 to 3 deals. Your job as an entrepreneur is to be one of those deals.

Pitch Training:

Each startup founder will get the opportunity to practice what they learned in the previous pitch workshop by delivering a 3-minute pitch and receive detailed feedback. Most importantly, other founders will be able to provide feedback. All participants walkway with exceptional experience and feeling they have already improved with great feedback to win pitch competitions, raise capital and close sales. Plus, it’s the whole team that is supporting your growth in a safe environment. We all come into a safe environment with a growth mindset (“I learn and I improve”) and the opportunity to give back to others (“I add value to the people around me”) – truly a founder-to-founder support system.
