Learn to Pitch to Investors Workshop

September 3 in Traverse City

TRAVERSE CITY, MI Pitching to investors is an art form, but every quality investor pitch follows a common narrative arc. The workshop “Learn to Pitch to Investors” will help businesses learn how an effective pitch needs to quickly provide business context, address perceived risks, paint a picture of a future return for the investor, and set the stage for the Q&A after the pitch. The workshop is being held Tuesday, September 3, from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm at 20Fathoms, 101 N Park St. Suite #220, Traverse City. The workshop is being hosted by the Northwest Michigan Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and is co-sponsored by 20Fathoms.
