IF YOU ONLY HAVE 5 MINUTES OR LESS TO SELL YOURSELF, WHAT ARE SOME TIPS AND TRICKS FOR CAPTURING LARGE BUYERS OR INVESTORS’ ATTENTION?

Anna Mason, Director of Investments for Rise of the Rest and Co-Founder of Vinetta Project DC, is our industry expert for this evening on “Crafting the Perfect Pitch” with social-impact businesses in mind.

We know the #1 fear of most humans is public speaking — so let’s change that! At the close of the evening, we will have an improv pitch session where you will have the chance to implement the tips you’ve learned from Anna in front of your peers. But here’s a twist… you won’t be pitching your business!
