Pitching is a true art form. Done well, it leaves your audience – potential investors and partners, your peers and future customers – burning to delve deeper into your big idea and be sign up to be part of your journey.
Hands-on training and advanced skills
The iAccelerate Pitch program arms startups with advanced skills in practicing, polishing and pitching their business idea to a panel of experts. Residents benefit from hands-on training and experience, learning what works and how to sell an idea and vision succinctly to excite and inspire interest.
The program includes peer-to-peer pitching opportunities, professional presentation training and mentoring, culminating in a final pitching event to put it all in to practice in front of industry experts and investors from the local, national and global business community.
“It taught us a lot about different phases of startups and how to pitch our idea. It was really interactive and useful.”
New intakes start with a written application then a pitch to our selection panel. Those who make the cut move to our trailblazing Educate program. Meeting the assessment criteria moves businesses into the seed funding, incubation and opportunities for further funding. The final step is graduation into the local economy as a well-prepared and sustainable business.
