How To Pitch Your Idea

Boost your pitching know-how with our expert talks

So you’ve got a cool idea for a new startup! There’s just one obstacle – you need to get the idea out of your head and into the real world with words and pictures that connect with your target audience – be it potential co-founders and team mates, early adopters and beach head customers or – most commonly – potential funders and investors.

In these super practical, 60-minute sessions we will go over the key ingredients of what makes a successful pitch, including:

  • The three different types of pitch (and which to use when)
  • Key pitch headings
  • Find your flow (structure + narrative)
  • Slide design (do’s and don’ts!)

This masterclass will give you a grounding in the basics and the confidence to craft your own pitch decks. You can also book a Pitch Surgery at the end of each session for an opportunity to practice your pitch 1:1 with a member of the E-Lab team.

Who is this masterclass for?

Everyone from complete pitch newbies to seasoned demo day pitch masters!

These interactive sessions are all about providing helpful tips, pointers and feedback – and what matters most is your commitment to learning the basics and adapting your approach until you find the formula that works for you.
