Pitch Club: You’re not your khakis… I mean, unless your startup is about khakis
Yes, friends, it’s that time again. Pitch Club is imminent. As in this Thursday.
And yes—before you ask—you have to pitch. But I know you can do it. You’ve got a great idea or product or prototype or whatever. And you need to practice talking about it. Sorry but you do. So steel your resolve, gird your loins, and get your ass to PIE on Thursday.
What’s Pitch Club, you ask?
Want to practice your startup pitch in front of people who’ve done it before? Crave the harsh criticism of your peers? Need the validation of seeing what works and what doesn’t in other pitches?
Bring your 3 minute pitch. Put your name in a hat and if it gets picked, you’re on. Powerpoints discouraged – just pitch. Then, answer questions and listen to painfully honest feedback from a panel of so-called experts.
The first rule of Pitch Club is you HAVE TO PITCH.
We’ll provide refreshments. Which may help with that whole resolve thing.
