"Pitch Perfect" – Top 10 Tips for a 10 Minute Pitch

No Second Chance for a First Impression…  

You Have the chance of a lifetime to present to angels, or VCs – you’re told to keep it to 10 minutes…

Hey, no pressure there, right?

How on earth do you explain your venture in only 10 minutes?

A common mistake that entrepreneurs make is to try to tell EVERYTHING in those 10 minutes.

Ok – that’s not what they meant…  So what should be in the pitch?

Donna Abraham, a Corporate Storyteller, will talk about the winning ingredients of a brief, powerful pitch – both in content and delivery.

Donna Abraham has been working with Boyer Communications Group, Inc. – a world renowned communications consulting company, for nearly a decade, and even opened the first international branch of the company in Israel 5 years ago.

Donna has worked with Start ups in seed phase all the way up to major Fortune 500 companies in over 20 countries, helping people “get their story straight,” taking mounds of data and turning them in to powerful messages that drive to action: presentations, keynotes, pitches, documents, and even one-on-one conversations.


Donna has worked with a variety of companies from the real
ms of  Hi-tech, Bio-med, Telecom, Consumer etc., with individuals from Sales and Marketing all the way to R&D – who have to occasionally explain to non-tech people what it is that they are developing!

    A great workshop on the Do's and Don'ts of promoting and fund-raising your venture.
    The event concluded with 4 'pitches' where the audience gave the presenters the Good and the Bad feedback.

    Great presentation, great audience. Donna: you are a true "woman of valor" ! (to translate a biblical expression in Hebrew that Meetup web server totally messed up a second ago)

    Enjoyed the informative session. If any of the attendees would be interested in founding if there strategy has a good to excellent chance for success or failure, I suggest they go to the following site where you can download a report based on 3200 startups that failed or succeeded and why. You can also go to their beta program, fill in detailed data about your start up and get feed back on your chance of success. Remember, good ideas are not enough. It is all about scaling and dedication.

  • Lynda Leah L.

    This was an excellent presentation. I "mistakenly" thought this would be in English as I'm reading all the promotional material in English. My ivrit is not yet strong enough to absorb a whole lecture and discussion and there was no provision for translation, except what the speaker provided so I'll have to reevaluate my participation in the group. Otherwise, it was an excellent program.

    Donna,
    A very interesting, educational and entertaining evening. I'm pleased I attended. In addition to your presentation, the "pitch" sessions worked well ... you have a talent for observing many details during just a 2-3 minute pitch, and the ability to immediately summarize the +'s and -'s, which together I am sure added value to those brave enough to pitch!
