How’s your 60-second pitch working for ya? Could it stand a refresh? Get ready to learn new and better ways to make your pitch more effective at opening doors to opportunity. Step one: register here — it won’t cost you a dime.
Step two: tune in and join us tomorrow, July 23 at 4:30 p.m. ET / 1:30 p.m. PT, for the next Pitchers & Pitches competition. We randomly chose five Digital Startup Alley exhibitors to bring the heat — in the form of their best 60-second pitch — in front of a panel of expert judges. We’ll name all the names in just a minute.
Note: Anyone can attend Pitchers & Pitches, but only companies exhibiting in Digital Startup Alley during Disrupt 2020 are eligible to pitch.
The invaluable critique, feedback and advice pitchers receive will help them take their elevator pitch to new heights — a great way to prepare for showcasing their tech at Disrupt 2020. Not pitching? No problem — you can apply what you learn to your own business and take your elevator pitch up a few more floors.
Here are five more excellent reasons to tune in:
- Check out the new virtual Disrupt platform before it goes live in September
- Watch and interact with the pitch-off event on the virtual main stage
- Meet and video network with other attendees
- Connect with the five pitchers in their virtual booth in the startup expo
- The viewing audience (that’s you folks) chooses which team wins the pitch-off
The founders of the winning startup get a consulting session with cela, a company that connects early-stage startups to accelerators and incubators that can help scale their businesses.
Okay, let’s get to the judges for this session. We’ve tapped the experienced minds of two TechCrunch editors — Jordan Crook and Alex Wilhelm. Rounding out the panel we have two top featured VCs — Monique Idlett, of Reign Ventures and Jess Morris Jr., general partner and founder of Chapter One VC. They’ll drop a whole lot of knowledge to help you impress potential investors and customers alike.
Here are the five pitchers currently warming up in the bullpen and ready to take the mound in tomorrow’s competition:
