It is critical to have a compelling pitch. Pitching means capturing your audience by telling a great story, knowing your material and having a simple ask at the end of your pitch. You might be asking for funding, a sale, or just simply, a follow up meeting. The DEC has created a 3-week pitch program that helps refine and practice your pitch - both your elevator pitch and a 10-minute pitch. The Pitch Practice Winter program is sponsored by Microsoft Bizspark.
