Workshop: VVM Pitch Camp, learn how to pitch to investors
Workshop Description

In this workshop you are taught how to pitch your idea to investors.  Entrepreneurs (who must sign up in advance) will pitch their companies, using slides, and receive lovingly critical feedback. Feedback is designed so everyone in the audience can learn from the experience, not just the pitchers :).  We have room for 2 entrepreneurs to pitch.


If you would like to pitch:

Here is how it works for Pitchers (attendees, you can just come listen/participate, no pre-work necessary):

  1. Watch these videos on how to pitch (technically the videos are about an executive summary, but the rules are the same):

    1. Part I: Introduction, company, need, solution

    2. Part II: Market

    3. Part III: Competition, business model

    4. Part IV: Financials, exit, impact

    5. Part V: People, deliverables

  2. Develop your pitch slides & presentation.  Aim for 10 minutes.  If you run a little over during this Pitch Camp, that is all right.  Follow the template outlined here:

    1. Company - Describe your venture in a tweet/sentence | describe what kind of skill set you bring to a job in a tweet/sentence.

    2. Credibility - Talk is cheap, SHOW us you are someone with more than just an idea / someone we should continue listening to.  If you have no credibility yet (very common!), skip this section.

    3. Customer Segment(s) - Give us a quick feeling for who your target market is and that they have enough money to make your venture worthwhile.

    4. Pains - What is the pain (for your target market) you are solving?

    5. Gains - What benefits can you deliver to the target market that alleviates their pain?

    6. Competitive Advantages - How are you positioned better than the competition? Remember the positioning triangle.

    7. Revenue Model - How do you earn money? From whom?

    8. Cost Structure - What are the biggest cost centers for your venture?

    9. Exit/Impact - How will investors (or donors) get a return (financial or otherwise) from your venture?

    10. People - Who is leading this venture and why should we believe they have the skills & experience needed to execute?

    11. Next Steps / Ask - What are the next critical steps for your venture and how will funding facilitate that?.  

  3. To maximize the value of the pitch session, come with the best version of the pitch you can make (both slides & accompanying speech).  Winging is a waste of everyone's time.

  4. Come to the event with your presentation slides, in PDF format, loaded on a thumb drive.  

  5. Come equipped to take notes because we'll give you a fire hose of feedback and won't have time to repeat :).

  6. Dress as you imagine you would when presenting to investors/donors so we can advise on that as well.

  7. We have only two slots, to apply for one email Jake (jake.hawkesworth@valleyventurementors.org).  We put this instruction at the end of the list to screen out people who don’t read instructions ;).

Tumbling Bones & The Four Legged Faithful at Passim
Tumbling Bones & The Four Legged Faithful at Passim



Wednesday, August 13, 2014 - 8:00pm





Tumbling Bones is a group of young men inspired by old music. Drawing on bluegrass and pre-WWII folk, these songsters play a mix of original compositions and traditional material infused with the infectious energy of the rock’n’roll they were reared on. They make their music with nothing but acoustic instruments, tap shoes, and most importantly, their voices. With more and more string bands popping up every day, these boys have established themselves as one of the preeminent vocally-driven roots groups. With nuanced a cappella gospel numbers and inventive harmony arrangements, Tumbling Bones are enrapturing audiences both in the United States and Europe.

Founding members Pete Winne (guitar, foot percussion) and Jake Hoffman (banjo, upright bass) met ten years ago when they were randomly assigned as college roommates. They formed Tumbling Bones in 2011 and two years later joined forces with songwriter and guitarist Kyle Morgan. The addition of Morgan allowed the band to do what they love best—sing in dynamic three-part harmony—and to create a distinct sound weaving Morgan’s original songs with their passion for traditional American folk music.

These road warriors have sung on street corners and stages across Europe and the United States including an appearance on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. Their debut EP, Risk Not Your Soul, cracked the Top 10 on the Roots Music Report’s folk radio chart. Last year they were chosen as finalists for the extremely selective American Musicians Abroad program, a U.S. State Department-funded project that sends American bands overseas to perform and lead music workshops for students. In spring 2014 they release their first full-length album, which they recorded in an 18th century farmhouse in their home state of Maine. Loving a Fool—half original songs and half traditional numbers with a Tumbling Bones stamp—hits Europe in April and breaks into US airwaves in June.

Tumbling Bones are passionate about the heritage of American music and their honest, no frills take on it burns with a fire that’s all too often missing from the increasingly ubiquitous Americana-by-numbers -Hot Press

Wind-up-clock tight and a fresh burst of energy -Philadelphia Weekly


http://tumblingbones.com/

The Four Legged Faithful are a band made up of 4 ordinary men who all thrive on playing music together. Their aim is not to play traditional folk or bluegrass music, but instead to create beautiful, heart-felt, and genuine music using traditional folk/bluegrass instruments. They create a sound that is honest and reflects the band's many musical influences from nearly all genres. All members sing; creating multiple combinations of 2, 3, and 4-part harmonies. All members write and sing songs about their thoughts, families, and the natural world that surrounds them. For a band without a drummer, The Four Legged Faithful achieve an incredible level of intensity using foot percussion and layered rhythms throughout every measure.
