How to Hack your Pitching

As a workshop, "How to Hack your Pitching" is an introduction to all things pitching: an idea, a cause, a startup. It’s a 20-minute intro into the specifics of what makes pitching great and what to avoid, followed by a practical section in actual pitching for your idea and startup that prepares each team for one of the most critical aspects of their startup’s lifecycle: how to make people understand what you do and inspire them to invest/buy/share it.
