A startup event couldn't be a startup event without a "Pitch" Event...
Founders are encouraged to apply to present for feedback on "Investor Decks", "Product Decks", "Feature Improvements", and "Team Decks".
If you are an early to mid-staged startup or small business, we encourage you to apply.
We welcome most pitch opportunities, though we do have a procedure for how we accept and vet applicants.
Here are the steps you can expect:
Step 1 - Have a 30-Second Pitch in mind, have responses available for the "Problem", "Solution", "Go-To-Market Strategy", "Team", and "Ask"
Step 2 - Click the link to schedule a Calendly screening phone call
Step 3 - Schedule a Zoom "Mock Presentation" through Calendly
Step 4 - If approved, you will be added to the schedule
Step 5 - Ahead of the event, you should be promoting your upcoming pitch at Tech Alley through email, social media and throughout your network
Step 6 - On the day of your pitch:
We will only have 1-2 presenters
Each presenter will have 7-Minutes to pitch
The audience will have 20-Minutes to ask one question each. These are feedback questions, not time to explain what was not included in the deck. In most cases, the most appropriate response to a feedback question is simply, "Good point. Thank you"
After the pitches and feedback, there will be time to network and follow up
