Venture Finance Workshop
Ok, so you just walked into an elevator with John Doerr, and he pushes the button for the 17th floor. For the next 30 seconds, you've got him all to yourself. He looks around at you and nods, smiles briefly. You clear your throat... and what do you say?
When your moment in the spotlight arrives, you should be prepared to tell your story - and make it concise, compelling, and complete. A good pitch and solid, straightforward presentation could be the difference between a seed or first round investment, or having to make payroll with a Visa card (or not at all, as luck may have it.)
Join us for a unique roundtable workshop, and we'll show you how to craft a pitch that will make your elevator ride worth remembering!
Want to Pitch?
Come prepared with a brief (1-3 minute) pitch to share at your table. You'll get feedback directly from the VC on how they perceive you and your company. It's a great way to get a leg up before that all important meeting. And who knows, you may just get interest right then and there.
