Constantly providing right skills to the cohorts in your accelerator program is time consuming and needs contextualisation. Having interviewed over 400 guests from the startup ecosystem, we understand your pain. So why not free yourself from this process of up-skilling your startup founders and have us as your training partners?
We offer customised workshops with a strong record to equip your tech startups with the skill-sets and mindsets to prepare them for the 21st century. Our speciality is in startup pitching, brand storytelling, communications and presentations.
The UpStart workshops combine theory, exercises, role-play and one-on-one coaching. A role-play runs throughout the 3 workshops, incorporating Q&A and feedback sessions, pitch presentation creation and preparation, culminating the pitch itself. The workshops can be adapted to support internal processes and typical pitch scenarios.

Do you wish to emotionally connect with your team & stakeholders? Influence decision-making processes, and reduce resistance to change? Inspire and instill trust & commitment to goals & values? Be able to effectively deliver messages, lead and motivate interdepartmental co-operation? Great Communicators are able to take their audience and stakeholders on a journey, leaving them inspired and motivated. But getting your ideas across and keeping your audience engaged throughout is tricky. When mastered, storytelling can be a powerful communication and pitching tool.
Did you know the optimum pitch deck size is just 6 slides? A good pitch is short, snappy and on-point. Prove to your audience that you are focussed on the message and you will win the trust of investors, future team members and clients. Share with the participants the “Ultimate Pitch Deck” you need to pitch to an investor. Understand the different types of pitching contexts (e.g. startup pitching for awareness vs. pitching for funding vs. business pitching to obtain buy-in from management and other departments). Walk through each slide and show how to make even your numbers more engaging. Participants will have access to 50-100 real life pitch decks (used on ATP Show) as we analyse them for learning purpose.
By this session the participant will be able to incorporate storytelling in their pitches. Participants will understand what investors and partners are looking out for and how to tackle the challenging questions asked by the judges in pitching competitions. As an instructor, Graham Brown is a firm believer in application, so the participants would get a chance to enjoy the session in the ATP Studio setup as to make this “pitching to investors” segment more relaxed than a nervous experience. Students get a takeaway a recording of their pitch as a benchmark for their learning development. This will be followed by all the participants pitching to a guest judge and Graham Brown and will be asked by a series of follow up questions and will be given feedback. This will be an arrangement similar to pitching.
