The Inclusive Business Accelerator, an initiative of VC4Africa, BoP Innovation Center, SNV and Nyenrode Business School, is organizing an online bootcamp on ‘Learn how to pitch to investors’. The registration deadline has been extended to 12 July. Join the bootcamp!
Pitching is an essential skill for entrepreneurs. You need to have a solid pitch to convince partners, clients and most importantly, investors. How do you build your story? How do you explain your business ideas? And how do you convince investors that there is a market opportunity and that you and your team can make an impact and change the world?
In July the Inclusive Business Accelerator organizes an online bootcamp on pitching your inclusive business with help of David Beckett (photo). David Beckett is an experienced pitch coach who helps entrepreneurs make investment winning pitches. He has supported over 130 startups in pitching to investors and his clients have secured over $40 million in investment. He is a TEDx speech coach, and his book ‘Three Minute Presentation’ has reached more than 100,000 readers.
On the online platform you will get access to training videos, background readings and exercises. Central to the bootcamp is the Pitch Canvas©: A tool to help you visualize your whole pitch on a single page. The bootcamp offers the possibility to hand in an assignment to show you have a great pitch. The three best pitches will be selected to receive a personal coaching session with David Beckett (online), worth $550.
Participants that complete the bootcamp get full access to an extensive course platform on pitching (worth $100). It features exclusive video trainings material, exercises, and a free copy of David Beckett’s book ‘Three Minute Presentation’, which gives you everything you need to become an engaging presenter.
The bootcamp targets entrepreneurs that have an existing business. To participate in the IB Accelerator bootcamp you must register to the Inclusive Business Accelerator platform. If you are working on an ‘inclusive business’ you can also register a venture profile. Then you have the opportunity to profile your venture towards investors, members and peers.
You can register for the bootcamp before July 12, the bootcamp starts July 13. Download the flyer (PDF) for more information about the way you can participate in the bootcamp. Register via the Inclusive Business Accelerator platform. Hope to see you online next week during the bootcamp!
