Perfect your business pitch

When preparing for your crowdfunding campaign, the first and most important exercise is honing your pitch. As a Founder, it is your job to be able to articulate the mission of your company and the problem your product/service is solving, making sure whoever is listening fully understands why your business needs to exist. A perfect pitch is not only extremely valuable for your crowdfunding campaign,  but it’s also critical to getting your first customers, and eventually securing your next round of funding after your campaign. Join us for this interactive session with IFundWomen Startup Coach, Alex Brockelman, where you'll write and practice pitching your business live!
