We’re all being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in different ways. One of the ways entrepreneurs are feeling stunted is through lack of feedback- specifically, a lack of feedback on their pitch.
An entrepreneur’s elevator pitch communicates and highlights the most critical aspects that a business or product offers. It’s one of the most important things for an entrepreneur to develop when trying to get a project off the ground.
The key to polishing your elevator pitch? Constructive feedback.
The reaction you receive on your pitch can help predict the future success of your company and how potential investors and consumers will receive it. Getting feedback also allows you to make adjustments and changes to your pitch if necessary.
The problem? Getting feedback during a pandemic is difficult. Usually, if we’re picking the brain of a colleague or mentor, we’re doing when they’re physically present.
Pitch Perfect is a platform on which you can upload your 5-minute pitches- no matter where they are. Then, Pitch Perfect automatically matches with the right experts for your specific pitch. Then, those experts give you great, constructive feedback in the form of a text or video.
“After taking part in various Pitching Competitions, I realized most of us have amazing ideas, however most of us messed it up when it came to the actual pitching,” says Pitch Perfect maker Gary Willmott. He also noticed that, while helpful, those competitions and programs can be costly and timeconsuming.
“However, I noticed the feedback was invaluable, not only for investment, but also for product, sales and marketing strategy” remarks Willmott.
So, he created Pitch Perfect to enable entrepreneurs to get feedback and introductions from vetted experts (investors and successful entrepreneurs) who provide feedback to help them take their idea to the next level.
Why use Pitch Perfect? The platform’s website lists six reasons.
