About this Event
A critical stage for entrepreneurs is presenting to potential investors. Many entrepreneurs and innovators fail to progress with their ideas because they lack presentation skills. You are often given a limited amount of time to introduce and justify your solution to a problem. In this workshop you will learn a systematic approach towards a pitch presentation and how you should prepare for this challenge.
- Understanding why justifying the problem is more important than justifying the solution.
- Structuring a pitch presentation.
- Improving the key skills needed for a pitch presentation.
Presented via Zoom
