Hosted by the Wharton Alumni Club of Seattle
How do you craft and deliver a compelling pitch to get angel or VC investors interested? As an entrepreneur you’re constantly competing for the attention of investors. It is absolutely critical that you claim your few minutes of air time to make a dynamic and long-lasting impression on potential investors. This practical workshop will take you through a practical and hands-on approach to pitching, providing you with exercises, activities, examples and opportunity to work on your pitching skills.
This class will provide you with:
-A framework for pitching to investors
-Practical activities to improve key skills
-Practice your own pitch and hear others
-Exposure to best case example of investor pitches
In this clinic led by a seasoned investor and entrepreneur from Alliance of Angels, you will gain insights on how to effectively present a business opportunity to angel investors, including fine-tuning messaging, fitting essential information into a presentation, and providing a set of best practices for entrepreneurs to follow when developing their pitch.
The clinic will include an in-depth review of the components of a good pitch, and (depending on the size of the group) an interactive workshop setting in which the presenter will both answer questions and work with participants on their specific messaging.
