Practice Your Pitch events – Yes, practice makes perfect, so they say! Before you step up to deliver your pitch on the big day to your potential investors, try it out first!
Its’ a dress rehearsal - get the experience of delivering your deck without the stress of the critical eye of your prospective investors on the day of your one hour to impress!
At our future events up to three candidates get to run through their latest pitch and invite structured feedback from an expert panel. At the end of the pitches and feedback, just for fun, we find out who the event attendees would vote to most likely connect with and with whom they would connect with and/or invest their imaginary millions!
