Event description

Description

RIC Centre has partnered with Mississauga Business Enterprise Centre to host a seminar on "How to Successfully Pitch to Investors" as part of our "Beyond Business Basics" Speaker Series.

Raising money is hard as every entrepreneur knows. While there is no magic formula that guarantees success, there are some fundamentals that help.

Perfecting your pitch is one of the most important things for any startup or entrepreneur to do. Your elevator pitch, which is tightly tied to your value proposition, has to be short, sweet and to the point. It cannot be overly technical but also can’t be too light on detail. Does it tell a story of who you are, what you do, your “So What” and “Why You”? Through this workshop, you will:

  • Reveal or examine the purpose of your story

  • Strengthen your presentation skills (ex. closing techniques)

  • Enhance your pitch deck
