RIC Centre Expert Speaker Series: Creating Your Elevator Pitch
Mon, 14 November 2016, 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM EST
RIC Centre is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a "Creating Your Elevator Pitch" Expert Speaker Series Seminar this fall.
Creating Your Elevator Pitch
This is fundamentally 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”? Our session will help you craft or tailor your Elevator Pitch to make it more effective.
Remember that this Expert Speaker Series seminar is also a great opportunity to network with other tech
