About this event

What will I learn?

Learn the principles of building storytelling into your pitch deck to get investors to lean in, how to augment your pitch to still be relevant and impactful amidst the Covid-19 era, and go through the exact strategies and formulas that have helped startups like FanFood, Muses, Wicked Reports, and others secure customers, raise millions of dollars across investors and pitch competition winnings, and set them up to become game-changers.

Who should attend?

You should attend if you plan to fundraise and/or sell your product/service this year, AND if you already have a baseline understanding of how to build a pitch deck. You might already have a deck -- That's good! We won't cover how to build your deck from scratch, but we will cover how to make your deck better.
