About the Course

A great pitch has two goals: establishing that the opportunity is big and showing that you can pull it off.

Luckily the era of sending 100-page business plans is over. Therefore, you will be perfectly fine with a pitch deck that is a brief presentation of your company, its mission, product, and business strategy. 

If you plan on fundraising, you will need to prepare different decks - a short elevator pitch, more complex investor deck and a contest pitch, which will be useful during startup competition.

This course will help you build different types of pitches based on your requirements.

Who could (or should) bother about pitching?  

All founders who are looking to make an impact whether it is their fundraising efforts or connecting with partners or chasing customers or even getting key team members on board would need to learn how to build a pitch.

What’s to come

Over the ten lessons, you’ll learn how to create different types of pitches.

There are 10 text-based lessons to cover all the concepts and tools. Each lesson would take 5 to 10 minutes of your reading time, plus some processing; to take the learning further.

With the course - absolutely free of cost, you also get an absolutely free of cost - coaching opportunity to clear your thoughts; with no strings attached. 

Why this course?

There is an ample amount of information, articles etc. freely available on this subject. They, why this course?

In past, when I worked with startup founders on the stage when they worked on their first pitch.  I used to refer them to different information available on the subject. But invariably, there had been some hiccups and I ended up evolving a set of communication documents that seemed to work for an effective output. 

This course is the outcome of those sets of series of instructions that went back and forth between me and startup founders previously.

Who is this course for?

This course is designed for the absolutely first-timers to the concept of fundraising and pitching. The whole idea behind this course is to hand-hold the founders who are newbies to pitching game, in order to get the things out there in an efficient way.

Even, for the founders who are familiar with the pitch decks or who have used the pitch deck before, there could be some value in terms of one-on-one coaching on the subject in the context of their business.
Intended Audience: Wannabe entrepreneurs, First time entrepreneurs, Startup founders who just took a plunge, Student entrepreneurs, Homepreneurs, Professionals looking for side hustle projects, fundraising, investor, pitch, angel investment, seed investment

Instructor

Presently, I am involved in entrepreneurship training, mentoring and startup consulting.

My prior work involved a stint in an early venture fund and launching and building two businesses.

My current focus area is - early stage starups, early traction, lean business model, value proposition, investors deck, business plan, product-market fit, minimum viable product (MVP), strategy, growth, lean business model validation process and more.

My core strength is about experimenting.

Many individuals and teams struggle to move from ideas to projects (or startups), at the right time. Sometimes ideas remain ideas for way too long. At other times they become projects (or startups) prematurely, without validation. Running experiments is the missing step. It’s a distinct unit or phase of work.

Running the right experiments is hard and this is where I bring in value.
