We’re teaching our first ever online workshop about “How to pitch investors” on eduFire — a platform for live video teaching online. Sign up here. I’ve taken classes on eduFire and it works really well; here are some recordings of their classes.
(Update: This class is full so I’ve opened up a second class. Sign up here.)
(Another update: The second class is also full. E-mail me to get on the waiting list for the next class. And if you want to buy a recording of the class, e-mail me or contact me on eduFire. We obviously won’t be able to work on your pitch with a recording, so it’s half the price ($49).)
What you’ll accomplish
You could be building the next Google — but investors won’t know it if your pitch doesn’t sing. You’re going to “walk” out the workshop with:
- A great pitch for your startup.
- A list of things your startup will need to accomplish before you can raise money.
- An understanding of the fundamentals of pitching so you can revise your pitch anytime and teach your friends how to do it.
- A copy of our Pitching Hacks e-book.
First we’ll cover the fundamentals:
What investors want to see
How to get intros to investors
Decks and presentations
Then we’ll work on your pitch as a group. You’ll get lots of hands-on advice from me and other students. I’ll also be sharing some of my latest pitching techniques which we haven’t published anywhere.
This is the first time we’ve ever done anything like this and I’m psyched.
Time and Cost
The workshop costs $98 (just like Wal-Mart) and there are only 3 2 slots left (uh, somebody signed up while I was writing this). It consists of 2 sessions on Tuesday Nov 3rd 5-6pm Pacific and Thursday Nov 5th 5-6pm Pacific. You go to both sessions. Sign up here.
(Update: This class is full so I’ve opened a second class on Wed Nov 4th 1-2pm Pacific and Friday Nov 6th 1-2pm Pacific. You go to both sessions. Sign up here.)
(Another update: The second class is also full. If you want to buy a recording of the class, e-mail me or contact me on eduFire. We obviously won’t be able to work on your pitch with a recording, so it’s half the price.)
We’ve helped startups raise tens of millions of dollars from investors like Sequoia, Benchmark, Bessemer, etc. See the reviews of our pitching advice from entrepreneurs like Adam Smith at Xobni and Jonathan Grubb from Get Satisfaction.
The only prerequisite is determination. You’ll be even better prepared if you read the fundamentals above.
