Founders Floor Workshop: Effectively Present Your Startup & Network With Confidence

Date: March, 15 2018

Silicon Valley’s Best Pitch Coach, Nathan Gold, will lead a workshop on how to effectively present your startup to investors and network with confidence in any business situation.

Relationship building is essential for all startups, whether it’s connecting with investors, selling your vision to potential customers, or recruiting talented employees in a competitive market.

  • Develop ways that work for you to overcome self-consciousness or anxiety in business situations.
  • Navigate a networking event feeling empowered to approach new people and start conversations.
  • Learn unique tips, tricks and structures to feel confident and at ease in all kinds of networking environments.
