Improve Your Pitch by Pitching to Kids!

Mar 11, 2017

9:30am – 11:00am CT

This session requires RSVP, and access will only be available to badge types listed under “Primary Access.”

This workshop will be a mini version of the tradition Pitch-a-Kid event with three companies pitching to a panel of kid judges. The judges will score the pitches for each of the three presenting companies. After the presentations are complete, the judges will reveal their scores to the entrepreneurs and discuss what they heard and why they scored them accordingly. The feedback will provide insights into how well the entrepreneurs can use simple language, appropriate analogies, and story telling to communicate the key aspects of their companies. It will also reveal where some aspects of their pitch broke down and need to be improved.
