Course Image (Suggestion)

This is product-based course. Users will end with improved pitch deck slides and an improved pitch deck presentation.

This course is only open to CEO-users who have completed course 11-103 (Creating a Winning Pitch Deck) or to have already completed a pitch deck. Users without that background can join as an investor.

Participants will upload a video of their pitch deck slides and the actual presentation. All participants will play the part of constructive critic (investor) to each others' pitch presentations and offer clarifying or probing questions to which each CEO can respond.

All users will have access to multiple resources detailing best practices in pitch deck creation including three real-world samples of actual pitch deck from existing companies.

Users joining this course as innovators/CEOs benefit from getting multiple levels of feedback on their pitch deck regarding the technical (pacing, volume, message) and fundamental (defined problem/solution, product description, target demographic, business model, etc.). CEOs/Innovators also benefit from practicing detailed responses to investor's questions, and the subsequent feedback those answers foster.

Users joining this course as investors benefit from exposure to a variety of pitch deck ideas and the ability to apply principles of best practice into construtive feedback for other CEOs aspiring entrepreneurs. They take this knowledge with an increased ability to provide feedback to spot potential successful start-ups, and the ability to better create their own pitch deck in the future.

Participants should expect to give and receive effective feedback. 

To be determined.

Learning should be fun and relevant.

Our interactive, dynamic environment keeps learning active for instructors and students, allowing customizations and adaptations along the way to target specific skills at specific levels of complexity.

Most importantly, our learning platform transforms learning from the traditional… to the real world.

Students finish our courses with tangible experience, taking action and creating products they can use in the future. Additionally, they have the opportunity to receive feedback on what they create from a variety of users - helping to fine-tune the quality and message.

Learning is more than summarizing content understanding. It is demonstrated by how effectively we can apply that content into a tangible product that is valued by others. That’s how learning is in the real world, and we think it’s time online learning took a big step in that direction.
