Real Talk – Pitch It ‘Til You Make It

Tuesday April 27 4:00PM
During April's Real Talk, we'll hear firsthand from tried-and-tested founders who have pitched their business ideas countless times before and persevered. George Cook and Gabriela (Gaby) Isturiz are ready to share their pitching victories, hiccups, and nightmares. Not every pitch ends with a million-dollar investment, and our featured founders—who these days are more often on the receiving end of pitches—know what it takes to resist giving up and move forward.

Visualizing Powerful Products

Thursday May 6 4:00PM

Join serial entrepreneur and CMU professor, Adam Paulisick, as he guides a small group through the process of building a stakeholder map and considerations for creating a minimum viable product (MVP).

The hands-on workshop will help you prioritize who to build for and sell to and equip you with the tools to create a simple but compelling concept map that educates customers, investors, and future employees on the powerful experience you're building. Each participant will walk away with their very own stakeholder map and storyboard.

This free, 90-minute workshop will be limited to 15 participants. Adam will be using miro.com, an online collaborative whiteboard, to help participants visualize their stakeholder map. In advance of the workshop, participants will be required to attend a brief session on the wonders of miro.com (Friday, April 30, 8:30 AM) or watch a brief tutorial video.

Real Talk – What’s the Difference: Prototypes vs. Pilot Tests

Tuesday May 25 4:00PM

Join Ascender's lively virtual Real Talk - What's the Difference: Prototypes vs. Pilot Tests to connect with startup founders and industry experts and discuss pressing questions entrepreneurs face right now. At Real Talk, entrepreneurs set the agenda. When you register, send us your questions in advance, and startup founders will discuss them during the live session.

In May, our conversation will focus on the differences between prototypes and pilot tests and what it takes to test your product or service's feasibility and usability. We'll be joined by Tomer Borenstein, Co-Founder and CTO at BlastPoint, and another guest to be announced soon.
