Elevator Pitch Coaching
Impact statement
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to focus our efforts on our program, which is where we really make a difference.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Document outlining feedback on pitch delivery with suggested next steps and/or resources
  • A script for a 1-minute verbal pitch that communicates your Organization's mission, work, and why people should care
Additional Details

I have been doing this on gut for 6 years, and if nothing else, I would like to refine and formalize this, and make room for simple customization.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have mission statement, and plenty of marketing materials, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a decent website with info, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

One less thing to worry about: having a go-to short pitch will be a huge confidence booster
