How to attract attention for your inclusive innovation with an online profile and pitch-video
Inclusive innovators have many different traits, and pitching and networking are definitely two of them. It is important that others become equally excited about your business idea for solving some of the biggest problems in underserved communities. Without the support of the customers, investors and other stakeholders, many inclusive innovations will not be realized. In module 7 you have learned about how to develop a good pitch. However, when you cannot meet your next big client at a large networking event and pitch to them face-to-face, you will have to take things online. Developing skills for online presentation and communication has become even more important during the Covid-19 crisis. For that reason, we have created this bonus module in which we give practical tips on how to present yourself online.
In the first section of this bonus module, we will focus on the aspects of what makes a good online profile for your enterprise on the VC4A platform. With over 85,000 members, 13,500 registered startups or SMEs, 400 mentors, and numerous investors, VC4A is one of the largest online communities for (social) entrepreneurs and therefore highly recommended. Besides providing you with a number of practical tips on how to set up a great profile on VC4A, this section will also give you insights on how to make the most of what VC4A has to offer.
The second part of this bonus module will teach you the skills to master a great presentation in a virtual live-pitching setting, as well as via a recorded pitch-video. In this part of the module, you have a chance to learn first-hand from renowned pitch coach, David Beckett. David is the creator of the Best 3 Minutes Pitch Methodology, a TEDx speech coach, and has trained over 850 Startups and 13,000 professionals throughout his ongoing career. In the assignment section, we will guide you through the process of creating your own pitch-video, incorporating all the tips provided in the bonus module.
