Often, you only have sixty seconds or less to make a good impression on a potential investor. One of the hardest things to do is to talk about what you’re doing in a concise and compelling way.

We have assembled a room full of investors, serial entrepreneurs, and experts to help you nail down your sixty-second pitch.

With some beer stations in between, you’ll be working  one-on-one with our mentors until your elevator pitch is perfected.

Have fun, tune up your motor mouth, and perfect your pitch!

Pitch Expert: Ham Lord, Launchpad Venture Group
