Pitching to Government Agencies

May 1, 2019
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Online Training

Attendees will learn how to create “elevator pitches”, business to business matchmaker pitches, and tech-forum or demo day pitches to potential partners, investor, or customers.

After crafting the pitches attendees will have the opportunity to practice what they’ve developed and receive feedback. We’ll cover all of the basic elements needed for each type of pitch, as well as the length and objective(s) of each one. Participants will learn about each element of the various types of pitches and how to maximize results. We’ll also give tips on what to include and what not to include, as well as time management objectives.
