Founders Should Practice Their Pitch
Pitching your startup is an essential skill for founders. You can practice on your own. You can practice in front of friends and colleagues, but you get a whole different experience when pitching in front of a large room of knowledgeable strangers. ENET’s eMinute Pitch program is a great way for founders to build experience pitching their startups in front of a large, friendly audience. Our expert panelists will also provide valuable feedback and suggestions for you to refine your pitch.
Why Practice Your Pitch at ENET
eMinute Pitch is not another version of Shark Tank or its imitators. Founders get 90 seconds to introduce their company, talk about the problem they’re solving, the traction they’ve gotten, and what their next step is. It’s an ‘elevator pitch,’ but you can put up one slide during the presentation.
Before you are selected to present your pitch, you will get advice to refine your pitch and your presentation slide from ENET’s eMinute Pitch program director.
After your pitch presentation, you will received several minutes of feedback and suggestions from the panelists that are presenting during the ENET event. These panelists are experienced entrepreneurs, business advisors and investors in the startup community.
You get about 5 minutes of free publicity in front of ENET’s audience during your pitch and the panelists feedback.
After your pitch, your startup’s slide and details will be posted on ENET’s website, providing more publicity for your company.
