LaunchPad Follow-up

January 22nd, 2007 · No Comments

It has been a little over a week since the pitch contest, so I thought I’d better post a follow up. There were about 40 teams, and nine teams made the finals. James delivered the pitch for us (I did the contest that last year, so thought I’d sit out this year), nailed the first round, and we made the finals!! There were a lot of strong pitches, and despite delivering well in the final round, we didn’t walk away with one of the prizes. One of our classmates did take home $1000, and MBET had 4 people in the finals. It was a great showing for our class!!

Overall, the pitch contest was an excellent experience. It forced us to think about our business and flesh out some of the details, and gave us something to work with and refine as we go forward.

Now back to sales training… coincidentally, we’re talking about communicating your value proposition this morning. These are good sessions so I should really stop writing and get back to paying attention.
