 EXPLAIN coaches young entrepreneurs at start-up contest GROW

»Pitch to Win« is the title of our workshop and a promise to the participants. How to best prepare and perform a presentation for investors is what the start-up founders learned from us at business idea contest GROW (Geschäftsideen-Wettbewerb GROW ). Our trainer and presentation coach Kailey Peng was there to prepare the participants for their big pitch on presentation day and to answer questions. After all, their final performances would be judged by a group of top experts. During this workshop we polished up the presentation content and then did a thorough practice run – a veritable pitching marathon – in order to get the participants warmed-up for their talk.

Pardonate participants win 1st  place with their pitch

We are especially happy that our workshop participants from Pardonate, a social betting platform provider, won 1st place at the competition – congratulations! Their start-up founder Simon Prinz gave us the following feedback: »The workshop run by EXPLAIN in the week before the GROW finals was extremely useful. We got some good general tips for pitching and personal feedback on our presentation styles. This helped us expand our strengths and work on our weaknesses. Special thanks from the whole team go to our trainer Kailey!«

And a great big thank you to all for this inspiring exchange of ideas. Any time!
