Could everybody please answer this Google Form whether you plan on making a pitch? Even if you do not plan on making a pitch, please fill it out so that we get a better idea of how to manage the time properly.
Here is our suggested format that you use for your pitch. You can always do it your own way.
Who are you and what is your background? (5-10 Seconds)
What is the problem that your product is solving? Or, begin with a story (10-20 Seconds)
Explain the product and how it solves the problem (10-20 seconds)
Who do you need on your team (a developer, marketing, designer?) (5-10 seconds)
... and we think Bar 13 would be the best, which is round around the corner from Pivotal Labs, as the venue after 8:30 so that we can network further.
