Hacking Health Vancouver Café: Crafting the Perfect Pitch
March 28, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Communication is key to effective collaboration. At this pitch clinic, we’ll help you learn how to effectively craft a 60 second elevator-style pitch that will convey your idea in a way that transcends disciplines and reaches each individual regardless of their background or perspective!
If you are considering pitching an idea at the April 2nd Hacking Health Design Challenge kickoff event, attending this pitch clinic is highly recommended: we’ll help you learn how to deliver the right type and amount of information, within the 60-second time limit, to improve your odds of attracting a great team. And even if you aren’t planning on pitching at the Design Challenge, this is an excellent opportunity to learn several important tips for communicating an idea to share with others in a way that makes sense. It’s also a great chance to network with other Design Challenge participants, and get a sneak peek at some of the great projects that will be looking for members!
