What is the significance of a business pitch?

  • Entrepreneur sets out to seek financing - this is an idea about how to pitch an investor
  • The Business seeks to raise additional working capital - the bankers have to be convinced
  • The Sales Person wants his brand purchased - he must be adept and the sales pitch
  • The Business Development Executive wants to break into the premium customer - he must show comprehensive acumen.

The audience must be excited about idea in ways that engage them in a conversation about the business, hopefully leading to a solid relationship.

Because decisions rarely are made after just one meeting, the goal is to spark interest in the idea, the business and the company, so they ask for next steps after they hear the pitch.

These and more are what this course is about.
