“We’re at a very critical point right now where we are going to potential sponsors and pitching them about what we’re bringing to the New York biotech scene. Creating a succinct pitch deck was very important for major meetings we’ve had in the last month, especially with major pharmaceutical companies.” ~ Nicole
“This project seemed to be a really good fit for what they’re trying to do and the experience that I have. Plus I like working with really bright people and I have a soft spot for women entrepreneurs, so I really wanted to share my contacts and my experience with the team at KiiLN.” ~ Larry
“At this point we knew that we wanted Larry to become part of our network and a member of our community. I think in the future he will be helping the startups in KiiLN that will be our tenants.” ~ Nicole
KiiLN received a fresh business savvy pitch deck that appeals directly to their target audience. They used this deck to successfully pitch six major pharmaceutical companies and to apply to a National Small Business Association Grant.
“Having a more succinct one pitch deck, directed towards these pharmaceutical companies, our potential sponsors, was critical. We think our first major donations and our first major memberships are going to come from hopefully one of these pharmaceutical companies that we worked on these pitches for. It hasn’t come to fruition yet but I hope this is going to really be the start of the success of our fundraising campaign!” ~ Nicole
As they wait for the funding to come in, KiiLN is well setup to pitch their organization and can rely on the connection with Larry’s contacts and a lifetime advisor and board member.
“Overall, we’ve added another member to our team and hopefully he’ll be involved in our advisory board and going forward I think he’ll be a valuable resource for us. He is very willing to give his time for the future benefit of acquiring new clients but in a way he is being and he will be generous with his time as a consultant. He seemed genuinely excited to be a part of what we’re doing. He’s offered us lots of contacts, he has a very big address book with a lot of people that can help us and help our clients. And he’s been very open about wanting to help build our community and put people together.” ~ Nicole
“It’s always rewarding to go into a project where there’s one initial set of thinking and then by working together, we expand that into how to achieve what a client wants to accomplish. I really enjoyed working with them and I told them, they can call me anytime with any questions. They also asked if I would consider being on their board to which I said sure.” ~ Larry
Larry’s 30 hour pitch deck creation project resulted in $6,000 saved for KiiLN.
