This is Part 1 of a double workshop that meets on two days. When you register for this event, you will automatically be registered for Part 2 on January 19th from 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM.

This is a four session workshop focused on developing company pitch decks that are often presented to venture capitalist. The first session will include an activity lab on storytelling (which will include some reading) and framing of how to develop around an idea. The second session is a 90 minute group lab where teams will develop a "startup" around a challenge and practicing pitching. The final session is a 60 min session where teams pitch their startups and get feedback on their presentation. You don't need to have a concrete idea for a pitch--we'll be working in groups around developing a hypothetical idea, this is really about understanding the components of a pitch and a pitch would work.

What to expect:
Double workshop (meets twice a week for 2-hour sessions, 4 total hours of meeting time)
