This special Pitch Academy is run by Rockies Venture Club in cooperation with CU Anschutz SPARK|REACH for SPARK|REACH applicants and awardees.
The Pitch Academy is a workshop designed to polish your investor pitch, sharpen your strategy, and provide a background on what investors are looking for so that you can better connect with your audience and ultimately negotiate a successful deal. It is designed specifically adapted for life science companies to address some of the challenges and opportunities when pitching life science companies to both experienced life science investors and horizontally oriented venture capitalists.
Key topics covered include:
The RVC Pitch Academy is unique in that it is taught by instructors who work one-on-one with dozens of angel and venture capital investors in order to determine what it is that they want. About a third of the companies that RVC investors have invested in have been in life sciences because they see the value in this sector. Graduates of the Pitch Academy receive funding at over ten times the national rate for those who are seeking venture investment.
All participants are encouraged to have their pitch deck ready and you will get a chance to pitch in a 5-minute format and receive expert feedback and input from the RVC team, investors, and your peers.
