About this event

Greetings, Seattle Startup Grinders!

Are you ready to transform your startup pitch from "just another deck" to "the one they'll never forget"? Well, mark your calendars for April 30th because we have something special brewing just for you.

We're thrilled to announce an exclusive Fireside Chat with the legendary venture capitalist, Bill Bryant, at our next Startup Grind event. With a jaw-dropping track record of reviewing over 15,000 pitch decks, Bill is more than just a figure in the venture capital world; he's a treasure trove of insights, advice, and anecdotes that could be the key to unlocking your startup's potential.

What's on the Agenda?

This isn't your run-of-the-mill networking event. We're diving headfirst into the art and science of crafting pitch decks that not only capture attention but also win hearts (and investments). Bill will share his unparalleled expertise on what distinguishes a good pitch deck from a bad one, drawing on examples from history's most memorable pitches. Prepare for an enlightening journey through the good, the bad, and the ugly of pitch decks, with plenty of humor (and humility) along the way. And did we mention the food and wine that will be served throughout the event? Trust us, you won't want to miss it.

  • Expert Insights: Learn from a VC who's seen it all. Bill's feedback is gold for anyone looking to impress investors.

If you're looking to refine your pitching skills, seek candid feedback, or simply soak in stories from the startup trenches, you'll find yourself in good company.
