Practice Your Pitch and Network your Idea


This meetup will give you a chance to practice your pitch and will help prepare participants to get as much as possible from the April 25 - 27 TechRaising.

Bring your idea, a 90 second pitch, and enthusiasm ... we will provide feedback, Pizza and beverages.

If you are not yet familiar with TechRaising, please take a look at the TechRaising website and get a feel for the event format.

past blog post presents things you need to know about how to pitch your idea so you attract the talent you need to work on your project. This would be good to review before this meetup.

We also gained some additional insights on how to pitch to VC's from Adeo Ressi.

    Thank you to the organizers--Andrew, Margaret, Lydia--for their balance, knowledge, organization, wisdom and support. Thanks to the collective for all the collaborative sharing offered during the Q&A feedback. And most of all, thank you to those brave entrepreneurs who distilled their great ideas into 90 second pitches. Can't wait until next weekend!

    One more question: Is this geared only for participants in the upcoming TechRaising weekend event, or open for more general pitch practice/feedback (keeping to the 90s pitch format)? Thanks! -kara

      Hi Kara, this is open to everyone with the intent of helping those attending prepare for the event and others to get an idea of what this is all about. Yes we are keeping to the 90 second format.
