Registration for Communicating with Venture Capitalists and Donors Workshop
This workshop (September 27, noon-2:30, location TBA) will focus on helping you hone your research pitch for venture capitalists and other private donors. Please also plan to attend the panel discussion with the workshop leaders that day at 10:30 am.

The workshop portion of this series will be an opportunity to get feedback on your pitch from your colleagues as well as from connoisseurs of pitches. Therefore, you should plan to come to the workshop prepared to try out an elevator pitch (or at least a rough idea) and respond to questions folks may have.

The questions on this form will help us plan this workshop and future workshops. Because this is a hands-on workshop, space is limited. You will be notified of your workshop admission status in mid September. If demand greatly exceeds available slots, we hope to be able to offer additional workshops on this topic.
