About this event

RSVP to the event here: 

“We suck at telling our story!” Ever said that to yourself? You have this great product, but you're either too technical, too in the weeds, or just say too much to get investors, customers, and stakeholders to listen.

Then check out this event from one of our friends in the community!

​TeamWorking by TechNexus is excited to bring you Startup Hypeman Founder and Chief Pitch Artist RajNATION to help collaborators, entrepreneurs, and friends of TechNexus craft an elevator pitch that turns heads and gets people to say, "wait, tell me more!"

​Learn the exact strategies and formulas, plus see real pitches that have helped startups like FanFood, Honest Game, New Age Meats, and dozens of others secure customers, raise anywhere from $25k to $25 million through investors and pitch competitions, and become game-changers.

​This event is for those planning to fundraise and/or sell your product in the next year. Food and drinks provided!

​Looking for a place to work before the event? Great! We'd love to have you. TeamWorking has plenty of shared space to choose your own adventure — come hangout for the day, get some work done, invite a client, take a meeting, or book a huddle room.

(Psst! Raj is also one of the Startup Grind Chicago organizers, so you know this event is gonna be 10 fire emojis!)
