You have five (5) minutes, is your business or product ready to pitch?   On November 30, 2012, practice your pitch, and receive feedback from Investors, the Media and Retailers.  Now is the time to practice your different business pitches, so when the opportunities happen, you are confident and ready. 

Who's Coming: 

  • Angel Investors looking for companies to invest their money & time.
  • Georgette Timoney, producer for PBS programs One-on-One with Steve Adubato and Life & Living with Joanna Gagis, and segment producer for the international live morning news program Ebru Today will be looking for potential guests for these shows during the Your Media & Marketing Pitch workshop!
  • TELEBRANDS- (As Seen on TV) wants to see as many proudcts as possible- looking for the next Big Product Hit!!!

Why practice?  Practice Makes Perfect, is more than a saying, it is the truth.  Few women are coming to the table to pitch our businesses for funding, retail space or media exposure.  When we do, we are nervous, lack confidence and stumble through the pitch.  Afterwards, our drive back to the office is consumed with- "Why did I say that?  Why didn't say that?  I forgot to mention that!"

November 30th is about facing those fears and realizing, 'Yes, now is the time!"  We are too busy to waste time on- "shoulda, woulda, coulda."


Bring a coat, blanket, hats, scarves and/or mittens to donate to the victims of Superstorm Sandy and receive $10 Off the Regular Ticket Price.  Use code:  OIV12RR2 when registering.  Thank you- it is getting cold outside- winter is approaching & people are in need.
