Lesbians Who Tech (and friends) Burlington, VT  // 

#PitchPlease: A pitch workshop for YOU (as long as you’re queer, female, gender nonbinary, trans, OR an ally)

Date: Tuesday, September 20, 2016
Time: 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Fee: $20 (dinner will be provided)
Location: OgeeOne Lawson Lane Suite 130 | Burlington, VT 05401

Calling all queers: Pitch, please

Vermont is becoming a green tech hub of note, true, but from where we’re standing, the scene could use a strong dose of diversity. That’s where you come in! 

Have you been stewing on a business plan for quite a while, but haven’t gotten up the nerve to pitch it to anyone? Do you have an idea but no plan? Whether you come from a sales background, or you’re an engineer, whether you’re 24 or 64, we want your pitches. 

We’ve snagged a group of leaders in the local entrepreneurial scene (all female and/or queer!), and we're gathering at Ogee in Burlington after work on Tuesday, September 20th to give you some tips on developing a solid business plan, help you hone your pitch, and guide you toward the next steps on your entrepreneurial journey.

We’re keeping #PitchPlease small in order to maximize the benefit for all participants – register ASAP while there are still spots available. Once you've registered, we'll send some materials to help you prepare for the workshop.

Register here.

Kelly Scannell, COO,

Abbott Stark, Chief Marketing Officer, Ogee  (LaunchVT 2016 winner)
