Up to 5 startups will be selected to participate to the coaching workshop and be trained by a panel of seasoned investors on essential elements of pitch preparation (presentation tips, storytelling strategies and what are the key points investor want to see in the pitch), on business model, business plan and other key dimensions of startup’s business, on finding the right business partners, how the investor ecosystem works (understand where startup, investor, mentor as well as other stakeholders fit and how they operate), understand key challenges from startup and investor perspective, etc.
And last but not least, each of these 5 startups will get the chance to put theory into practice and pitch their idea in front of the EBAN investor community at the Investment Forum.
