You have just seconds to capture the attention of a potential partner. And yet most entrepreneurs waste valuable time with details that bore or confuse their audience. Learn how to start with what matters to any audience.



Talk is cheap! Learn how to use the best information you have available to convince even skeptical audiences that you are the right innovator with the right green chemistry approach to solve an important problem .


Most entrepreneurs end their pitch without completing it. Learn how to wrap up your pitch with an "ask" that is compelling and in your audience's sweet spot, instead of just assuming that they will figure out what to do on their own.

What you'll learn

  • 10 Questions every pitch should answer
  • 4 kinds of pitches every entrepreneur needs
