This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss! Every year we invite the innovators from around the globe to apply for the chance to pitch on the Startup Fair’s stage in front of the investor jury and international audience. If you’re an early-stage founder looking to get your name out there and compete for some amazing prizes, then wait no more and apply for the Startup Fair Pitch Battle! The deadline for applications is 9th of May at 8:00 am (EEST)
Pitching is a skill that needs copious amounts of direct feedback to master. The problem is that founders rarely get it in a systematic and transparent form. This practical and interactive session will give an opportunity to get actionable feedback to get you ready to pitch in front of the investors.
The session will be led by Gleb Maltsev, one of the best pitching trainers in the startup world. There are three main pillars of Gleb’s work—writing, delivery, and visuals. He has developed a fourth pillar during the past years—conversations (Q&A). It is one of the most complex pitch elements for most founders, regardless of the company stage. During the workshop, he’ll be giving the audience insights, tools, and tips to start climbing the skill acquisition learning curve of fundraising.
