The Thunderbird Pitch Competition is returning again this Fall and so is Henrik Scheel to give students expert advice on pitching their ideas! All on-campus MGM, MAGAM and Undergrads are invited to RSVP for this specialized pitch training. Come learn even if you don’t have a business idea or plan on participating in the pitch competition! Dinner and caffeine will be served.
In this fast-paced and interactive four-hour workshop, you'll learn how to present yourself and your startup in a memorable way. Many topics will be covered, such as the startup process, how to bring ideas to life, structure of your pitch, what is a good pitch deck, body language and voice control, how to contact investors, what investors ask and why, and much more. Being a good presenter is key in all careers and if you want to succeed in the startup world it's a skill you can't live without. Everything in life is a pitch!

During this final pitch competition, students will have the opportunity to win award money for their venture.
