"So... what do you do?"

If you're freelancing or building a business, you know the sometimes awkward feeling of trying to describe what you do to potential clients or funders. Which details to include? Which to leave out? Why should they care?

This short workshop will go over the basics of how to engage the listener in your story. Then we'll join a cohort of first time entrepreneurs in progress to see their pitches and hear the feedback they receive.

Background: participants in Groundswell’s Build program practice their pitch to several panels over the five month program. Some panels are geared towards finance, some towards marketing, and this one will be geared towards ethics.

Workshop is limited to eight participants, RSVP below to reserve your seat now!

About us: Do you have a strong desire to support yourself and make a change in the world? Do you want resources but ‘business school’ is NOT your jam? Groundswell is an alternative business school. We offer classes, mentoring, networking, and financing for your next big move. Discover Build will begin with an introduction to Groundswell and a short overview of our programs. Ask us anything!
