Synapse Competition: Pitch Training

Hone your ability to effectively pitch complex scientific concepts and business propositions to diverse audiences, including investors, potential partners, and stakeholders.

Through pitch training, life science entrepreneurs can refine their messaging, highlight key value propositions, and address potential concerns, enhancing their chances of securing funding and partnerships. This process helps distill intricate scientific innovations into compelling narratives that resonate with a broader audience, ultimately increasing the company’s visibility, credibility, and competitiveness in the dynamic and competitive life science landscape.

About Synapse Competition: Pitch Training

The Synapse Competition finalists will receive training and guidance on developing and delivering a clear, concise pitch, informing on the components of a pitch, delivery methods, and how to address questions and objections as well as important things to consider and include when for creating a deck.

Speaker: David Carter, CEO of Innovation Factory.
Prior to joining iF, David was CTO and Co-founder of Awareness Inc. His company raised 20 million in venture capital and worked with brands like New York Times, Major League Baseball, Sony Pictures and McDonalds. David will tell you his sweet spot is where technology, sales, and marketing intersect. He is quick to warn that technology alone does not ever solve the problem. During the 90s David worked for Microsoft and saw the arrival of graphical computing, smart phones, tablets and the Internet. He left Microsoft in 2001 to begin his first start-up.
