One of the most common challenges for entrepreneurs is to raise money from investors, high net individuals, friends, or sometimes even family members. A common myth plaguing aspiring entrepreneurs is the belief that investors will come to them if their product is good. Unfortunately, that is not true. No investor has the time to search for you and invest in your product. Instead, you have to go to them and pitch your idea.  

 

SoME believes pitching is an art and, like any art, requires effort, practice, and feedback to improve upon. Our Pitch Perfect Programme is for all entrepreneurs who want to work on brushing up their pitching skills, strengthen their communication, and present their products with confidence. The course will focus on understanding the basics of pitching and what makes a successful pitch, preparing a strong script and visuals, and learning to manage audience reactions. 


The six synchronous online classes of 90 minutes each will be spread over five to six weeks. Learners are expected to invest roughly 10 hours (or more) on our LMS, reviewing the video lectures and preparing for assignments and reading materials.

 

There will be some online or classroom sessions to fine-tune learners’ questions and to have a more insightful discussion of their pitches. Feedback will be provided to every participant to improve the pitch further.
