What the Pitch?

  • Mar 19, 2015 · 6:30 PM

We are just a few weeks away from One Spark, the largest event in the city designed for you to talk to others about what you're working on. Your pitch is the only thing between you and possible customers - so what are you going to do to get the most out of it? 

Join top local presenters and coaches as we learn what makes a great pitch, deconstruct each other's pitches, and provide actionable ways to present your product better. Let's try not to be this guy - "how not to pitch a billionaire."

Flow for the night:

• 6:30-7:00 - Networking (Beer/Pizza)

• 7:00-8:00 - Breaking down your pitch

• 8:00-8:30 - Networking (Beer)

Come out to Ignite, learn something, and let's help the ones around us. We're looking for a sponsor for this event - interested, give Anthony a shout ([masked])

      Thanks Anthony and thanks for all the feedback! I could not have done it without the support of StartUpJax and what I learned from these events!

    Hope you everybody is doing great and ready for some OneSpark magic. A friend shared this link with me this morning on Florida's Microfinance Program that is super helpful in regards to funding: The Florida Microfinance Act will help provide Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses in Florida access to credit. The Act consists of two programs: a Loan Program and a Guarantee Program.

    Not sure if this is the right place to post. Guy Kawasaki published a new book. I believe it would be worth reading for all of us: http://guykawasaki.com/books/the-art-of-the-start/

    Awesome time last night. Great job to the presenters who had the courage to jump up there. Nice work to Philip and Al for making it happen. And a big thank you for all who came out. Good luck at OneSpark.

    We'll see you in May.

    If you have a feedback of the event or how we can make this group better, feel free to email us. We love to get better.

    It was great meeting everyone last night! Thanks for your feedback on my pitch!

    I saw a few people taking video during pitches, will these be posted anywhere? I'd love a copy of my pitch and the feedback if it's available.

    As Google Partner my company has some insight information of many new things ran by Google. Some of you are running non-profit organizations. Which means you are in luck. Google announced grants $10,000 monthly spend on AdWords advertising campaigns:

    Let me know if you have questions.

    What if you are late? And not able to come at the start of the event?

    March 18, 2015

    • Anthony C.

      There are two choices: you have to chug 2 beers and eat a whole pizza; orrrrr you come out late, participate with the crowd and make new friends. The choice is yours! (Pro-tip - I like to do both but shhhhh)

    Hi =) would you be willing to change your location and do your event at Suite located in the Town Center? I am the sales and marketing director. I will be able to waive the Venue Fee and give you the entire venue privately for your 6:30-8:30 time. I will also be able to offer you personal group drink specials and you may bring in your own pizza if that is what you would like to eat. What do ya think?
