GLO Pittsburgh invites you to attend PitchBeyond on Tuesday, March 9th at 5:30pm ET
PitchBeyond engages entrepreneurs and CEOs to polish the skills for telling their story effectively, efficiently and powerfully. This event offers a welcoming and supportive environment to communicate your business’s story to specific target audiences.
The ability to tell your story in person, online, or even over the phone is more than a pitch. During this virtual event, each participant will pair up with various pitch partners. Each person will travel through Breakout rooms meeting other Pittsburgh entrepreneurs and pitching to a different “audience” in each room.
How does your pitch differ when telling your story to a potential investor versus a prospective customer versus a potential employee, etc?.
At the end we will come back together to discuss the experience and share what we learned.
Register today for this event: Non-Premium GLO members are entitled to come to two Pittsburgh Chapter events before upgrading to the Premium level.
