I've spent over 20 years on all sides of the table as a Silicon Valley investment banker, venture investor, and long-time tech entrepreneur. My book, Accelerated Startup is used by universities and accelerators around the world to train tech entrepreneurs.

Like I've done for thousands of others in keynotes and workshops, I will teach you how to Pitch Like a Boss. And for the first time ever, I will be doing it in a cohort-based, online course. This is the most comprehensive pitch training you can find online.
