About This Workshop

Crafting a great pitch is more than showcasing your product, market opportunity or expertise. Great pitches, the ones that lead to action, are constructed in a way that brings together the human need to ‘fight or flight’, with an actionable solution.

In this Pitch Lab workshop, we’ll discuss common mistakes made when pitching and ways you can avoid them. We’ll also dive into the science of storytelling and why the hero's journey is more than just a Hollywood structure.

Led by storytelling expert, Tim Shisler, who works with a number of accelerator programs including Techstars Boulder, Galvanize, Travelport Labs and Catalyze CU. Tim's professional speaking experience includes TEDxBoulder, Ignite Boulder, Society of American Travel Writers Global Convention and TBEX workshops.
