Join Us For The Dojo Dragons Roadshow

8th - 11th May 2017

 

The BizDojo Dragons Roadshow is the ultimate investment pitch coaching opportunity.

You're invited to join us at the Dojo Dragons Roadshow. This is your opportunity to practise your investment pitches in front of Greg Sitters and Ken Erskine, Co-Founders and Directors at 88Kiwis, during a Pitch Coaching session.

As well as being on hand to watch you practise your pitching skills, they'll be offering invaluable feedback, so that the next time you do it with investors, you'll be a sure fire hit. And after the event, we'll send you a video of the presentation and the feedback, for you to keep and review.

We anticipate demand to be high for this event, and time will be of the essence. As a result, we'll be reviewing each submission and we'll be selecting the lucky few to get their hands on this opportunity. For the rest, you'll have a seat right in the heart of the action, giving you the chance to learn through others experiences.
