Overview: A successful pitch does more than just give an outline of your idea or grab someone’s attention. It captivates and convinces! At this workshop, you’ll learn what (and what not!) to do, and understand the structure of a powerful pitch. You’ll also learn how to write your pitch and craft a pitch deck.
