Join us May 14 for one or both of the following clean energy industry events!

Practice Pitch: 2-5 pm (ticket includes reception)

Clean Energy Rooftop Reception: 5-7 pm (you may register for reception only)

Hey startups! At some point, you will need to pitch for funding. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a forum where you can practice, get peer feedback, and re-run the pitch with the added insights? PEDC is providing this unique opportunity to do just that. Join us for the PEDC Pitch Practice / Peer Feedback Workshop.

Bring your pre-prepared pitch – we recommend the Kawasaki 10-20-30 Rule of pitch development. Deliver your pitch to a room full of peers and some investor-advisors. Get feedback. Re-run your pitch. You will also be expected to pay attention to your peers’ pitches and provide meaningful feedback to them too. Focus will be on presentation style and format; not on dissecting 5-year cash flow pro formas. Prior attendees of this session have said “this is the most valuable feedback I have ever gotten.” The pitch practice session will be facilitated by Dave McCarthy, PEDC Executive Director. The pitch session runs from 2 to 5 PM.

Register for this event here.


Following the pitch session, we will adjourn to the gorgeous rooftop of 1425 K St. for a networking reception from 5 to 7 PM. (Rain location: SEIA office, Ste 1000.)
