On Tuesday, September 13th, Launch Funding Network, Inc. (LAUNCHfn) hosted an elevator pitch workshop for entrepreneurs at The Hub in Atlanta, GA. The day-long session included a number of activities designed to help maximize the impact of the short-format introduction and provided an open forum for questions and discussion. The workshop was followed by an evening networking event, allowing the attendees an opportunity to practice their pitch to an audience of investors and members of the capital community.
“Junction is committed to advancing opportunities for start-ups companies and growing businesses. We were so impressed with the quality of companies emerging in the region, “said Julie Gareleck, Managing Partner, Junction. “Karen provided quality content and an ideal environment for the entrepreneurs to pitch to the investment community.”
Guests enjoyed drinks and light hors d’oeuvres as the room buzzed with newly improved pitches. The entrepreneurs also had the chance to address the entire group, which many did to great effect, utilizing the tips, tricks, and insights that LAUNCHfn President Karen Rands had shared throughout the day.
“We had really pleased with the turnout and the quality of the people in the room,” commented Rands. “Creating an effective elevator pitch is critical to the success of entrepreneurial CEOs, and days like today are so valuable in helping them refine and perfect it. It wouldn’t be possible without the support of the community here in Atlanta and our fantastic sponsors.”
