As of today, 15 June, we only have seven slots and four are already reserved. Give us a call or send us an email to connect with us to be considered a candidate for pitching. 

Here's a sample outline for your seven-minute pitch:

  1. Tell your story in three parts: problem, context, solution
  2. In your problem statement, define your ask ie, answer the question, HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT?
  3. Use images not text in your slides (PowerPoint isn't necessary, however you may want to consider printing out a deck for the investors)

-       Include a slide that identifies your target market and how you will reach them IN NUMBERS

-       Include a graph that shows your 5-year growth projection and NET PROFIT year over year

-       Include a slide that shows your team and answers the question, WHY THEM?

  1. Practice out loud at least five times before you even think about showing up
  2. In your closing, restate your invitation to invest in your COMPANY AND YOUR TEAM
