Don't Pitch Me Bro, Full Day Special!
With so many startups looking for generous, honest feedback on their products, we have decided to run a full day of Don't Pitch Me Bro!
We will have 15 startups demoing over 3 themed* sessions during the day, followed by a special "Don't Swiss Me Bro!" session in the evening, in collaboration with the Swiss Embassy.
What to expect from Don't Pitch Me Bro!
We've all seen it, the snake-oil salesman who gets up, is confident with his words, has great delivery, drops in some funny jokes, maybe he even drops the F-bomb to shake you up a bit... but the product sucks. Before you know it, you're surrounded by a standing ovation, he's presented a massive cheque, and you're left wondering if you've lost the plot...
Well we're here to help!
Don't Pitch Me Bro! is designed to get to the nitty gritty of business, not the hockey stick graphs and zero revenue models, but instead designed to help startups ascertain where the next step may lie.
Each session will have 5 startups that demo their ideas and then they have the opportunity to ask for specific feedback. We encourage the audience to avoid "pitch" style interrogation and instead offer useful opinions and constructive criticism that will really help the startups.
After the demos there will be the opportunity for networking and refreshments.
There are a few simple rules:
- Be nice, it's not easy putting your dream in front of others
- Try to understand the reasons behind the issues
- A supportive network is crucial to evolution.
