About This Event

It's helpful to have an elevator pitch for just about any social setting where you need to give an introduction of who you are and what you do. Your description should be easy for anyone to understand, even if they are not familiar with your industry. And, as the name suggests, it should be short enough to be delivered in the time it takes to ride up a few floors in an elevator, which is about 30-60 seconds. Please join us for Pitch Perfect on Thursday, July 25, 11am-1pm at Impact Hub Oakland for an interactive workshop to help you develop your elevator pitch. Learn the components of an elevator pitch and draft your pitch. Practice your pitch and receive feedback.          Uptima Presents Lesa Hammond, Ph.D., Lead Instructor & Mentor in our Funding a Business course in Oakland.
