It’s all about the pitch! Entrepreneurs and small business owners need to learn how to pitch their idea or business to family, friends, customers, bankers, and investors. Each one of your pitches will vary according to whom your audience is. As an entrepreneur or small business owner, you will always be its number one salesperson / spokesperson so developing your pitch is critical to the success of your business.
This Entrepreneurs’ Forum will give you the outline needed for you to make an elevator pitch, or a business plan competition pitch. The class will be taught by Rick Paul the TCC Spark Program Coordinator. Rick has developed business plan competitions, created the judge’s rubric for scoring business plan competitions, been a business plan judge, and helped hundreds of students and community members refine their pitches. Sign up today…tickets are only $5 and are only available at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/its-all-about-the-pitch-tickets-45516638491.
