NorthStar Consulting to Launch Pitch 2.0

By: Paul Chen

Last year in the Google for Entrepreneurs conference space in Krakow, NorthStar Consulting and Google organized the first iteration of Pitch. The goal was to help registered startups with their pitch to investors. The startups were educated in the art of acting, public speaking, drafting a sales talk, and understanding what is going on in an investor's head while they are being pitched to. It was through this program where we met Flowbox, Mavenpad, WhenVisited, Mofables, and Arios.

This year they are launching their Pitch workshops again. This year the workshops will be held on November 14 and 15, 2014 at the KPT campus on ul. ┼╗yczkowskiego 14, Krak├│w. During the workshops, the teams will be mentored by some of the best in the business.

The teams will be focusing on:

  • Developing an effective elevator pitch
  • How to prepare awesome presentations
  • How to schedule a presentation
  • Best way to negotiate price
  • Building a product image

When a startup leaves this set of workshops, they will have, in their hand, a sales maual of how to pitch to clients.

Przemek Stanisz the organizer says that startups die because of the lack of knowledge of effective sales strategies. He believes that the workshop will adress this need to its core. What they are looking for are startups with an existing product, whereby the team and implement the knowledge they gained the next day. He believes that the knowledge is best used when it is fresh in your mind. Basically, strike while the iron is hot.
