Nope, this won’t be a screening of the popular toe-tapping musical comedy. But you will walk away with the know-how to tune your start-up’s performance and hit those high notes. :)

Pitching is an essential skill for every entrepreneur, especially when talking with investors and potential customers. There are thousands of pitch templates online and whole books on the subject, so why are most pitches still so ineffective? The main issue is that our pitches usually reflect what we think is important, not what the audience cares about.

Join us on September 8 for a presentation on how to attain "perfect pitch" by Boston-based international pitch coach, Linda Plano.

Linda Plano, Principal, Plano & Simple ( – Linda has coached nearly 600 entrepreneurs, mostly in high-tech industries, and they have gone on to raise well over $250 million. She has 20 years of experience in management, including start-ups and established companies, and has co-founded and run major investor pitch events and accelerators in life sciences, clean technology, nanotech and other areas.
