Event description

Description

Raising capital from investors is difficult and time consuming. You want to make a good first impression. Investors want to make decisions quickly.

A great pitch deck is the key to capturing the attention and imagination of a potential investor, and perhaps the single most important document your startup will generate. The first step is gathering all the right content. But what makes your presentation stand out is how you arrange and present your ideas.

In this workshop, Steph Patterson will explore how to incorporate tried and true storytelling tactics to make your pitch more memorable and persuasive.

You’ll learn:

- The right content to include in a high concept pitch
- Common mistakes founders make and how to avoid them
- How to present your ideas using a persuasive structure
