PitchMasters: Workshop on how to pitch!

  • Make Offices 2000 Pennsylvania Ave NW #7000 Washington, DC (map)

DC Startup Week 2019

Since PitchMasters creation, over 50 companies have presented their businesses to CEOs, advisors, business attorneys and investors to gain valuable feedback.

At this workshop-style event, four new companies seeking to become “pitch-perfect” will present their investor decks to the group and receive feedback to help refine companies’ pitch before they go in front of the investors. This is a great opportunity for companies to get ready for that “ask”.

If you would like to participate in this workshop and pitch your company (5 minute pitch with 5 minutes of feedback), please contact Lisa Friedlander of Next Powered by Shulman Rogers at
