We partnered with Uncubed to bring you Entrepreneur Essentials, a 3-part series on the challenges ALL entrepreneurs face when starting a business:
1. How to pitch
2. Hiring and firing
3. Office space
PivotDesk CEO and Co-Founder, David Mandell has seen it all throughout his career as a serial startup founder and Techstars mentor. Through these lessons, his goal is to inform entrepreneurs based on his own past successes and failures.
Part 1 will focus on a challenge all entrepreneurs must master: The pitch.
Why start with the pitch?
When you’re running a business, focus is essential. Measuring all of your efforts against a finely targeted goal is the best way to move your company forward, and mastering your pitch is essential to finding this focus.
But learning to cultivate a strong pitch isn’t just for founders. Everyone should know how to create and deliver a strong message.
Because no matter what it is you’re selling — whether it be a product, an article, an idea or yourself — the truth is always the same:
No one gives a sh*t what you do.
So, how do you get someone to care?
Simple: Target emotion NOT logic.
Unfortunately, getting to simple is complex. Join David Mandell as he teaches the fundamentals of how to craft a killer pitch for any audience.
The modern workplace is changing fast...
