Bay Area Women Grow & Gateway Incubator Present: Startup Pitch Workshop

Gateway is excited to work with the Bay Area Women Grow chapter to present a special workshop focused on women founders. Pitching is a key skill of every successful entrepreneur. How do you communicate your business clearly to employees, customers, and investors? What are some common pitching mistakes that make you look inexperienced? What is the best way to pitch your business? Participants of this workshop will gain the knowledge and confidence they need to win the support of future co-founders, team members, customers, partners, sponsors, and of course, investors!

This intensive workshop will help you improve your pitching skills and understand the components of a great pitch, as well as provide practice until you get it right.

Please note: this event is for women-identified founders (or aspiring founders) only.  Space is limited to the first 30 registrants.

Cost: $35
Price includes catered lunch

During this 4 hour session attendees will break into small groups and work with Gateway Founders Ben Larson & Carter Laren to learn about the ins and outs of crafting your pitch, including: The One-Sentence Pitch, The Basics, The Story and Delivery.

So, here it is, a birthday bash + another awesome Gateway VIP mixer in one! If you were at our last one, it's like that plus more awesomeness.

Music, lights, drinks, snacks, stuff, late-night pizza delivery, lounging, and more.

PARKING AND GETTING TO GATEWAY

We are located in the Leviathan Building (330 2nd St, Oakland) near Jack London Square.

Driving: We are near the corner of 2nd and Webster. There is a big parking garage one block away at Harrison and 2nd.

BART: 12th Street Bart and Lake Merritt are both about a half-mile away. A short uber/cab away.

The uber-long Uber: We're about 13 miles from downtown SF ... not too bad in a pinch for you City-dwellers.
