Creating Award-winning Pitch

If you have an idea, you’re always pitching wanting to turn strangers into champions.

The elevator pitch is perhaps the most difficult form of human communication, where one is required to communicate the value of what they are doing, why they are doing it, and why anyone should care, in 60 seconds or less.


In this masterclass, you will learn how to sell your idea and your company on pitch events and networking events in front of investors and juries in an impressive way.


You will learn how best to prepare for your pitch decks for the pitch events and the upcoming funding rounds in a way that is most efficient for you and your team. The masterclass is strictly limited to 20 participants and will be held in the English language.


During the 2 hour event he covers:

  • Pattern interrupt: How do I stand out with my venture?
  • Pitch structure: How should my pitch deck be built? What should be the contents?
  • Presentation goals: What do you want to achieve with your presentation? 
  • Storytelling: How can I build tension and inspire with my presentation?
  • Preparing your funding round - Learn how to systematically prepare for your upcoming  round: which investor materials to prepare, how to structure your investor deck and how to build an investor target list for your startup
