Innovation Challenge Step 8 – Pitching for Financial Support

September 17, 2014 @ 5:15 pm - 6:45 pm


Pitching for Financial Support

You’ve got an idea, you’re working through the Define and Develop stages and you think you need some financial support. How do you get other folks to buy into the premise? What’s you “pitch”?

We’ll review a 1-page format that’s the proven best practice for outlining you idea and getting others on board. It will outline all of the critical elements you’ll need to think about – especially the math (as in $$$).

  • What are you asking for?
  • Why do you need it?
  • If you get money, what will you do with it? Why?
  • What is the math to support you claims?

Who should attend?

  • The workshop is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about Innovation Engineering and taking ideas or inventions through the IE funnel.  Even if you don’t have an invention or idea, you can become an integral part of the Williamsport Innovation Ecosystem!
  • However, only those who have submitted an Innovation Challenge application are eligible for grant-funded activities (such as coaching, prototyping, etc.).  Click here for a downloadable application.
  • This workshop will give you the information you must submit as “step 8” of your application.

Location and Logistics

  • Classroom 134 at PCT in the same building (BWD) where the other events were held (see registration for details)
  • You will use computers to do internet searches and real-time research during the workshop without having to worry about wi-fi access issues.
  • Bring a thumb drive!  We will provide you with documents and other resources.
