Developing your Pitch

This is probably THE most important thing that you can do (if you do it right!) when starting your business.  The purpose of the pitch, in the words of Guy Kawasaki, a successful entrepreneur and investor, is to seek agreement (with an investor, a customer, a partner, etc.).  Speaking of Guy, he has two short and entertaining videos that explain what this presentation should look like and include:

One of the masters at pitching was the late Steve Jobs of Apple.  His pitch in 2001 introducing the first iPod is iconic.

One of our Vol Court presenters, Shawn Carson, does a terrific job, too.  Take a look at one of his recent pitch presentations here.
