Pitch Prep Program

All semifinalists participate in a four-week Pitch Prep Program leading up to the competition. The resources offered through this program include one-on-ones with pitch coaches and industry advisors and professional graphic design services to create a pitch deck for the big day. 

The Pitch Prep Program is one of the most valued aspects of the VentureCat student experience. Semifinalists sharpen their storytelling skills, improve presentation delivery, network with advisors, prepare for rigorous Q&A, and enter competition day with a professionally-designed pitch deck.

Developing my pitch was a great exercise, and I learned a lot through the mentorship process – not only about pitching, but also what mentors saw as weaknesses my business had and how to address them. ”
