futureSAX Start-up III Online

Presenting your own idea convincingly: the futureSAX Start-up Forum III Online

Beim futureSAX-Gründerforum III unter dem Motto "Die eigene Idee überzeugend präsentieren" bekamen die Nominierten des Sächsischen Gründerpreises 2020 ein Pitchtraining mit Kommunikationsexperten André Ottlik

Over 40 participants accepted the invitation to the last of the three futureSAX Start-up Forums. After the development of a business model and its financing had been the subject of personal exchange at the Start-up Forums I and II, this time everything revolved around the successful communication of innovative business ideas. For the first time, the event took place entirely in virtual space. Among the participants were not only the nominees but also some teams of the 20th Saxon Start-up Award as well as many other people interested in founding a company.

Pitch training for the nominees of the Saxon Start-up Award

After the welcome by Marina Heimann, managing director of futureSAX GmbH, an impulse webinar by communication trainer André Ottlik followed. He very clearly conveyed the basics of effective communication. Afterwards, the participants were asked to give their own presentations. The nominees and 15 other selected founders worked on their presentations in two groups.

Expert feedback for founders

While the nominees concentrated in the afternoon on preparing the jury meeting for the second round of judging on June 8, a quick check of the pitch story with expert feedback was on the agenda for the second group. In the process, the founders received valuable feedback and extensive assistance from André Ottlik and the futureSAX team.

Many thanks to all participants and speakers!
