Have you heard of Dragon’s Den? What about Shark Tank? Pitching to investors on TV can seem intimidating, ego-crushing and demoralizing. Although there is a quite a bit of TV magic thrown into the production, the real-life deal can seem the same as what you’ve watched on TV.

Over the course of this session, you will learn how to create your perfect pitch for TV, investors, or anyone needing to understand your business within 15 minutes or less. We’ll go over the content, what you should include in the pitch, tips on how to present and out your best foot forward and there will be plenty of Q&A time to answer any of your questions regarding interacting with investors, and what the process looks like.
