AFME says, “The art of the pitch changes depending on who you’re talking to: an equity investor, a crowd funding supporter, a brand or non-profit, or a customer/audience member. Over the course of the two hours, you will hone your pitch for each of these four categories. Come prepared to pitch your current or next project! You may be selected from the audience for a three minute pitch!”
