One-page post to promote Open Coaching

Preparing to pitch investors soon? I have one hour-long coaching slot still available for this Wednesday, 9/11.

If you haven't heard about Open Coaching, it's an educational session devoted exclusively to the investor pitch. Two companies get an hour of in-depth coaching of their investor presentation. But it's not private coaching. It's open to all entrepreneurs to come and observe and learn from seeing other companies go through the process. I’ve coached thousands of investor presentations over the last 20 years. I have a lot to say.

If this is your first time pitching to investors, you need this. If you you're an experienced CEO with lots of fund -raising experience, you'll appreciate the advanced presentation techniques and the opportunity to clarify your business story.

Any industry, including life sciences.

FREE. Sponsored by the global law firm DLA Piper. Why free? Because the DLA emerging growth practice isn’t as well known in Philadelphia as it is in other major markets (California, New York, Boston, DC, etc.) “The best law firm you never heard of.” The lawyers want Philadelphia entrepreneurs to know they exist.

I do this (almost) every Wednesday, 10:00 to 1:00, at DLA Piper on the 48th Floor of One Liberty Tower in Center City Philadelphia.

TESTIMONIALS

"Last week I pitched an investor over the phone--no slides. I knew what to say, I'm convinced, because of what I learned from Steve from just a few Open Coaching meetings. It's not just slides and pitching, it's about investor psychology. What do they REALLY want to know?"

-- Claudia Post, CEO, Scarlet Express

“Had a great experience last week at one of Steve Bowman's Open Coaching sessions. This isn't just practicing your public speaking— it's like taking swings in the batting cage for an hour with a personal hitting coach.

Steve really drills down on the details, and the rest of the group chimes in. Good constructive criticism in a friendly room. Two days later I had a super-smooth investor pitch. Highly recommended!”

-- Mark Surkin, CEO, DietaryDNA

"I've attended Steve's sessions many times and I always learn new ways to improve my presentation and story. Steve gives you his undivided attention and tells you what the audience is thinking during each slide."

-- Mahesh Narayanan, ImMAGE Biotherapeutics Corp

“I asked another early-stage entrepreneur (and pitch contest winner) who they'd recommend for coaching. Then I scored the 10AM slot during one of Steve's open-coaching sessions. 'Your pitch is a mess. It's all over the place' -- Steve started, before bringing out the hidden gems in my work. We accomplished more in that hour than I did during the previous month working on the presentation.”

-- Kristina Fahl, CEO, ShuttleBee
