Pitch-A-Kid serves two purposes.
Both are needed. Which one are you?
To connect every kid around the world to entrepreneurship.
To teach kids entrepreneurship and help entrepreneurs communicate more effectively.
What you get from participating in a Pitch-a-Kid is:
Kids will ask difficult questions that entrepreneurs need to be ready to answer before pitching to angel investors and VCs.
The kids are not only welcome, but encouraged, to ask critical and challenging questions of the entrepreneurs.
The honest and unfiltered feedback allows entrepreneurs to adjust their pitch before taking it to potential investors.
Pitch-a-Kid Prepares You For Accelerators and Angels
Pete Higgins, founding partner of Second Avenue Partners told The New York Times that "he invests when entrepreneurs can give simple explanations for complex subjects."
What better way for an entrepreneur to refine a pitch than presenting to an unbiased, receptive, and inquisitive audience – kids. Pitch-a-Kid events put real entrepreneurs in front of kids to refine and practice their pitch before getting in front of angel investors and venture capitalists (VCs).
The kids experience the unique opportunity to engage with entrepreneurs, develop and expand their critical thinking skills, and learn how an idea comes to life in the business world.
Hold your own Pitch-a-Kid at a startup accelerator or incubator in town for entrepreneurs and kids.
