Learning how to communicate the value of your startup effectively and concisely is critical to the success of your startup. Without it, you’ll never convince customers, employees, users, fans, media, and even investors on why they should support you.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to:

  • Deliver a great elevator pitch
  • Present a great investor deck
  • Create beautiful visuals
  • Get people to pay attention to you when you’re speaking
  • Stand out in the crowd
  • Not suck at your pitch

Nicole has worked with hundreds of startups, and has coached nearly 60 companies through Investor Day pitches.
