Be sure to check out Jennifer Sadler’s post on her experiences WINNING the speed pitch competition sponsored by Start.co this January!
After learning the fine art of a good pitch from Andrew Fowlkes, one of the leaders of StartCo, we jumped right in. As an aside, some of the information taught was to make sure to identify the problem, showcase it’s pain (how many people it affects, who, etc), and then tell about your solution. At the end, you were to make an ASK. An ASK is a statement of what you need. Do you need funding (which most projects require), mentorship (a valuable asset), programmers (for tech-related startups) and so on.
