GO-PITCH! WEEKEND

Feb 11 - Feb 12, 2017 in Medellin, Colombia

No "templates". No "course materials". No "cheat sheets". No "lectures"

Just you, me and my team working on your investor presentation. In 48 hours, we promise a 1-on-1 advanced workshop to help you transform your current investor presentation from blank pages into an impressive pitch deck.

 

Meet the Team!

Anyone looking to raise money has to create special documents meant for investors. One of the most important of these documents, is called an investor presentation. (Or more commonly known as a "pitch deck").

All pitch decks are not created equally. Every deck is different, but every deck has the same goal. 

Make them believe!

Since 2006, I've helped hundreds of startups create convincing presentations to raise early-stage capital. My secret? 

Tell a story! Most pitch decks that I come across are just a random collection of text and numbers and graphs.

A great pitch evokes emotion.

And that emotion, that enthusiasm is what you can leverage to close an investment.

So here's my pitch to you. At this workshop, we are not going to teach you how to make a great presentation; we’re going to create it with you. With my team of expert designers and my experience, we will work with you hands-on to surgically refine each slide - the content, design, layout as well as the flow of your pitch!
