Pitching to Male Investors – Women’s Edition
March 20, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
As an entrepreneur, your venture pitch is the most critical component of a fundraising process. You must attend high-stakes meetings filled with people who have the funds to turn your dream into a reality.
Studies have found that how you frame your pitch can be just as important as the business you’re pitching. Unfortunately, these studies have found that women entrepreneurs must clear a higher bar in how they frame their pitches. This gender bias is part of an ongoing problem in business.
In efforts to solve the larger issue of gender discrimination, this session endeavours to confront and unpack some very deeply-held biases and help you perfect your pitch, so that you can sell your business idea with confidence.
