The Art of the Effective Pitch & Launch: Creative Practices for Successful Entrepreneurship
Wednesday, June 26t between 07:00 – 09:00 PM, AIGA 130 Sutter Street, San Francisco
Every company has a story to tell, and it’s the creative’s job to bring that story to life. Each step of a start-up’s journey needs a narrative to give it that edge, from the first idea to the initial fundraising pitch – to the new product release and the market launch. A great story strategy, along with equally great brand design, can make a company jump off the page and into life. For this reason, and many more, businesses need creatives – catalysts for innovation – to be part of the process from beginning to end and beyond.
The Art of the Effective Pitch & Launch brings together a star panel of VCs, designers, and storytellers who together will deliver the message of the key role that story, design, and creativity play in entrepreneurial success. This and many more other surprises are waiting for you at San Francisco Design Week 2019!
