With the support of Victorian Government, through LaunchVic, Startmate is hosting regular pitch coaching workshops to help business founders hone their pitch to potential investors.

Hosted by Blackbird Ventures partner and Startmate EiR, Nick Crocker, these workshops have had exceptional feedback from participants, rating them a 9.1/10 on average.

  • Common mistakes and how to avoid them.
  • What not to include in the pitch!
