Crafting the Perfect Pitch

Friday, April 10, 2020, 12:30 AM

IF YOU ONLY HAVE 5 MINUTES OR LESS TO SELL YOURSELF, WHAT ARE SOME TIPS AND TRICKS FOR CAPTURING LARGE BUYERS OR INVESTORS’ ATTENTION? Our industry experts have extensive experience in pitching, as well as helping up-and-coming businesses pitch themselves. We know the #1 fear of most humans is public speaking — so let’s change that! At the close of the evening, we will have an improv pitch session where you will have the chance to implement the tips you’ve learned in front of your peers. But here’s a twist… you won’t be pitching your business!  BONUS: We will also be recording your business pitch so that you can have to reflect upon and use for future reference. School of Food is a year-long business training program for food and beverage entrepreneurs. Our personalized curriculum takes current and future food business owners on a journey that begins with the basics of defining your mission and unique value proposition; moves into the nitty-gritty of running a food business (like financial forecasting and health regulations); and ends with all the fun stuff you need to know when going to market, such as distribution, social media and marketing. We partner with industry experts to lead discussions around our outlined semester themes, and break into interactive activities for students to walk-away with tangible next steps. Students can participate in individual workshops or sign up for an SOF Passport which gives them unlimited access to every workshop, panel discussion, and networking opportunity we offer for a full year — plus other perks. School of Food - Frederick is brought to you by Cureate. School of Food is a Humanim Social Enterprise.
