What makes a wining pitch!

Dissecting the best and worst of the most famous pitch decks and getting down to the essential holy grail. You don't want to miss!

On April 4th Boston University's Questrom School of Business and Innovate@BU will host Barbara Russell in a webinar discussing how to craft a pitch deck that optimizes your chance as a founder to get funded. She is one of the top thought leaders on pitch decks and pitching, having just wrapped up her 22nd pitch competition as a judge since COVID began (all virtual). Barbara has honed her pitch deck and presentation skills as an investment banker, a very active angel investor, an adjunct professor (MIT, Babson, and now, U Mass) focused on early-stage companies - now having seen what she estimates to be a couple thousand pitches!

In this webinar, you will learn the key elements of what goes into a deck, how to present them efficiently, effectively, and eloquently. And then, how to employ storytelling skills to capture the audience’s attention. How to win over VC’s, angels, or other sources of capital that hear pitches ALL DAY LONG. She will also take you through some of the most famous pitch decks ever created (Uber, Coinbase, AirBnB, Tesla, etc.) and dissect them – and be able to point out the good, the bad and THE UGLY!!! What TO DO, and what TO AVOID!

It will be a fun ride. Strap in.
