Event description

Description

Are you ready to raise funds for your startup? Do you have what it takes to impress the investors to invest into your business?


Much of the succeses we have in life, both personal and professional, will depend on how well we “pitch” ourselves, or more simply how well we “sell” ourselves. A pitch should tell the story of you and/or your business. A bad pitch can cost you more than just a second meeting. Raising capital from investors can be challenging and time-consuming. Therefore, it is always crucial that we convey in a manner that shows our business as a compelling and interesting story.


At the end of the workshop, learners should be able to:

1) Identify what the investors are looking for;
2) Construct a compelling and interesting story to present to the investors;
3) Use body language and voice variation to deliver your story; and
4) Create an effective “call-to-action” to entice the investors.


This workshop is suitable for anyone who is interested in becoming an entrepreneur and build a viable startup business. The workshop is intentionally designed to be delivered in small group to foster interaction, allowing learners to work on their business models and get individualised feedback from an entrepreneur/investor himself, therefore it has limited seats.


*SPECIAL*

To help startups to define their business models, pitch decks and pitching, learners of this workshop will get a complimentary hour of individualised coaching (Valued at $200) from the trainer. The coaching is valid for 3 months from end of workshop. Learners of this workshop will be guaranteed a spot to pitch to an early-stage investor for seed funding.
