What we're about

Welcome! Our goal is to inspire, educate, and foster authentic relationships in order to support your success!

This is not a networking group to collect business cards or be stuck in a room with people trying to sell to you. We don't run events that feel like interactive infomercials.

You can expect to experience a more refreshing take on networking.

We are part of the 805 Startups network:

We believe in inclusion and diversity being a key component to innovation and growth.

Almost all of our events are designed to be accessible to everyone in order to support our mission. Everyone matters and has a role in the success of the community we share.

We offer Paid Memberships and Sponsorship Packages if you would like to gain extra benefits, to support your growth, through our relationships, expertise, and events.

If you would like to simply support our mission, we have Supporter Subscriptions (like a Patreon) available.

Pitch to Your Peers - A Pitch Deck and Presentation Workshop

Online event

$15.00

Our Pitch to Your Peers workshop is focused on teaching you how to put together an effective pitch deck and how to present it. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This event will take place over a Zoom meeting as we do our part in supporting the community while practicing COVID-19 safety protocols. Presenters practice running through their pitch deck in front of a live audience. Audience members are asked to practice empathy as they imagine themselves in the shoes of the intended audience of a presenter's pitch and provide constructive feedback. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We run this workshop in a fairly academic manner that provides a safe place to make mistakes and learn from them. We have helped founders practice their elevator pitch for a fresh idea, helped seasoned CEOs prepare for a huge fundraising round, and even helped career professionals practice pitching their boss for a raise. If you need practice, this workshop is for you. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sponsored by Draper, Goren, Holm Ventures --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Be sure to join our free Founder's Network for more support: https://www.805startups.com/foundersnetwork/
