The Government of Ontario is offering a series of free webinars to help reboot your export business.

This workshop designed to help you develop the all important “pitch presentation”, and we begin with what is most important to your customers and business partners – focusing on how you communicate your features, benefits and value. We will build up your presentation and then break that down into a 15-second elevator pitch and a two minute coffee pitch.

You can expect to leave with all the tools you need to make a lasting impression and differentiate yourself from the crowd.

The webinar will cover topics such as:

  • Differentiation and Unique Selling Proposition
  • Identifying Your Brand Essence

In this workshop we will share the building blocks of an effective investor pitch. Investors are inundated with executive summaries, business plans and emails with requests for meetings. Of all the companies that enter the economy in a given year, only about 10% receive angel funding and, of those, less than 2% will be funded by venture capital. As you may have seen on the shows “Dragon’s Den” or “Shark Tank,” investors ask tough questions and are looking for specific things in a pitch. Make sure that your pitch has all the right information and is presented in a format that grabs their attention and keeps it!
