FAQ

What happens at The Quick Pitch?

You'll have less than 3 minutes to pitch, and afterward our cohost (the investor or startup leader) will give you feedback.

If selected to pitch, can I use my pitch deck presentation?

Sorry, but no slides allowed. You will verbally practice your pitch.

However, you can always email us your deck and we'll share it with our network of investors if you want.

Will other people see my pitch after the event is over?

The Quick Pitch is a collective educational experience.


The event will be shared on our YouTube page and on the Mogul Millennial website.

Because of this, don't include anything in your pitch that you wouldn't want the world to know!

I'm an investor or startup leader and I want to cohost the next Quick Pitch.
