Pitch Clinic: Helping Researchers and Innovators Accelerate Their Entrepreneurial Journey
CategoriesEntrepreneurship Startups

The Pitch Clinic is a workshop that will help you master the pitch that every risk capital investor wants to hear. The registrations are now open for a new edition of the Pitch Clinic, a support service dedicated to helping entrepreneurial research teams accelerate the process of funding.

The Pitch Clinic workshop is designed for early-stage knowledge-intensive startups looking for risk-capital investors. It covers key aspects such as sources of funding, approaching investors, and creating an appropriate pitch tailored to specific situations. The participants will have access to learning resources, including a hands-on session to present their pitch live in front of other startups and receive personalized feedback.

We want to unburden entrepreneurial researchers and innovators from the daunting trial and error process of designing and presenting the right pitch. The Pitch Clinic provides not just a set of tools and a proven framework but also the opportunity to develop and practice an effective pitch together with experts and peers in a real-life context,” said Lorenzo Valeriani, Senior Expert at META Group and one of the trainers

Learn how to build a successful pitch deck

Drafting a successful pitch deck to raise funds can take 23 months with an average of 32 iterations. Many entrepreneurs spend up to 18 months struggling to develop an effective pitch and looking for potential investors, which leads to high opportunity costs. 

The experience on workshop was very positive. We received objective replies from experts but also from other CEOs from SMEs like us, that provide us their realistic and objective impression on the pitch. Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the pitch definitely help us to improve our deck. It is quite clear the importance to succeed in raising private investment to have an appealing but sustained deck,” said Dr. Carmen Plasencia, CEO and co-founder of AROMICS,  a biotech company specialised in functional genomics and proteomics technologies.

By joining the workshop, founders will be able to design or improve their existent pitch deck during an intensive 3,5-hour session. The program is based on META Groups’ 20 years of experience in coaching researchers and entrepreneurs, investing in early-stage startups, and helping innovators raise over €233M for their businesses.
