OEN Seminar: Pitch Perfect

Whether talking to someone in line at the supermarket or pitching to a VC, you need to be able to communicate your great idea. But the best message in the world won’t stick if you deliver it poorly, and a great delivery cannot overcome a confusing message. Join us to learn how to craft a clear, concise, compelling pitch that will pique investor interest.

You’ll walk away with an understanding of:

  • The problem you’re solving and your value proposition
  • What questions you need to answer before crafting your pitch
  • The elements, structure, and visuals that comprise a successful pitch
  • How to condense a full pitch into a one-minute elevator pitch

Registration for this workshop includes one pass to our March 14 PitchFest and three free months of LivePlan business plan software (combined value of $85). Following the workshop, participants will be asked to complete a one-page overview of their business using LivePlan and submit it for the opportunity to compete in PitchFest.

The winner of our PitchFest, determined by an audience vote, will receive a $1,000 cash prize from Palo Alto Software and a two-night stay at a Vacasa property.
