Build a Better Pitch Deck with Juan Diego Cordón, Ripened Ventures

  • KitchenTown SF @ The Archery 470 Alabama Street San Francisco, CA 94110 (map)

A pitch deck is one of the most common tools entrepreneurs have to share details about their business with various stakeholders: investors, distributors, customers, partners and more. Being prepared with a great deck can make it easier to respond to unforeseen opportunities. Your deck should be easy to understand, adaptable to different audiences and concise.

This workshop will cover the basic structure of a compelling pitch deck, with particular emphasis on three key slides: opportunity, problem–solution fit and value proposition. You'll work on developing and refining language for your deck with feedback from other participants in the session.

Highly recommended for startups accepted to pitch at this year's upcoming Food Funded Entrepreneur & Investor Fair.
