Having a good idea or a good product is one thing, but convincing someone else of this is another challenge. I’ve seen many pitches that did not find any buyers or investors, even though they were well prepared and met all the prerequisites. The presentation was just badly given, incomprehensible, boring, or came off as too needy. Common basic mistakes include a bad dramatic script, no suspense, a lack of personal involvement, the wrong focus, such as an overwhelming need to sell the product, or simply a poor conclusion. A good pitch needs to have a captivating narrative arc and should arouse the listener’s interest in being a part of the project.

In this workshop we’ll be using concrete examples to train for, and build, „The perfect pitch.“ The workshop is open to all, individuals or teams, who either already have a product or service, or a start-up idea, that they want to pitch.

Anyone who already has a finished Pitch Deck can send it topitch@der-sev.deprior to the start of the workshop
