Pitch Night

Work in Progress

Pitch Night at Work in Progress is your opportunity to get in front of investors for a chance to earn funding for your business. Everyone is welcome to attend Pitch Night to watch pitches and network. This event is free, and light refreshments are provided. It's not guaranteed, but we may allow open pitches after our official pitch participants have finished. Open mic pitches (if allowed) have a shorter time limit, may not use slides, and do not have additional time for Q&A.

*ONLINE WEBINAR* Lean Startup Shortcut > The Wow! Factor Test

Factor Test Startup Ignition is now in its fourth year of successful bootcamps for entrepreneurs. The entire Startup Ignition experience helps entrepreneurs make their ventures more successful. Too many startups and companies fail to get to the finish line where the fruits of entrepreneurial labor may be enjoyed. In a brief 30-min webinar, Startup Ignition instructor, founder, and CEO John Richards will share how to get customer feedback upfront and early in the startup process, resulting in a go/no-go decision. This will be a good sample of what you can expect if you choose to apply for participation in the upcoming 3-day EXPRESS cohort to be held May 2-4, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV. Join the webinar to get a feel for the course and have your questions answered. This is free to everyone. Invite your entrepreneur friends.

Pitch Practice

Work in Progress

Thinking about pitching your business to investors? Join us at Work in Progress to practice your pitching skills and start the process. WIP hosts quarterly Pitch Nights to allow a limited number of entrepreneurs to pitch to a panel of investors. Pitching at these events happens by invitation only, and most invitations are extended to entrepreneurs who come to Pitch Practice. A limited number of attendees will be allowed to practice their pitch for mentor and group feedback. Practicers will pitch to the group and receive feedback forms from audience member. After practice pitches are complete, our mentors will offer focused breakout workshops to help each pitcher with their specific needs. You're welcome to come and learn even if you're not planning to practice! When we divide into smaller sessions, you may choose the workshop you'd most like to attend. If you want to apply to practice your pitch, please submit a video that describes what you'd like to pitch in 3 minutes or less. Cell phone video is fine - we're looking for the people with the best potential to earn investment, not necessarily the people with the best video skills.
