Pitching Workshop

Stephanie von Lukowicz

Stephanie von Lukowicz will conduct our pitching workshop for this edition.


The workshop will include a theoretical section that discusses how to present a project in the best possible manner to various investors: essential elements, audiovisual material, structure and timing of pitch, post-pitch negotiations and further aspects related to the presentation.


Individualised work on each project will be conducted in the more practical section in order to identify strengths and weaknesses and prepare each participant to make the presentation that best suits his or her personality and project. A dynamic group-work methodology is used in which everyone has the possibility to take advantage of the example and experience of others.
