Details

This workshop is open and welcome to all genders, so feel free to bring your friends! We'll be learning how to quickly and effectively "pitch" - be it a business idea, project idea, or yourself.

We're excited to co-host this free event with Madison Startup Weekend, whose 2019 main event will be April 26th to 28th (https://www.swmadison.com/).

SCHEDULE

We'll have socializing and networking from 5:30pm to 6pm; you're welcome to arrive anytime in that half hour. The workshop will begin at 6pm, and go until 7 or 7:30pm.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

"You're a creative person with an idea bubbling in your brain. How do you get others excited about that idea? What will make the difference in making your idea a reality? It'll be the way you communicate it to the world: the way you pitch it.

Join the Startup Weekend team for an informal workshop where you'll learn the qualities of a great pitch, get to practice pitching about neutral topics, and get the chance to practice and receive feedback on your own pitch."

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

Fred Turkington is a software project manager and full-stack web developer. He's currently the Director of Operations at Ten Forward Consulting in Madison, and volunteers with Startup Weekend and code.forGood(). Before helping organize Startup Weekend, Fred was a participant. He founded a startup with a few of his teammates, and they went on to graduate from the gBeta accelerator program.

Talk to him about intrapreneurship inside large companies, ultimate, Flask, and Elm.
