In the Startup Insiders session in Karachi, Faisal Qureshi summed up the art of the pitch as follows (paraphrased):
“I may be a very good person, and have a very good personality – but do you give a **** about that? All you care about it is ‘what can I give you in 30 seconds?’ And if I cannot give you that, you’ll just go to someone who can”.
That about sums it up – if you cant sell a message to someone in 30 seconds, it doesnt matter how good your product is, the company will buy someone elses.
Well Zaheer A. Kidvai, aka ZAKintosh is holding a special workshop in Karachi and Lahore to help everyone fix that. This initiative is supported by PASHA, but I think this can benefit anyone – startups ; students ; managers. So do check it out.
TPS and Alchemy are already sending their staff to the workshops.
The Karachi one is sold out – so book your place for the lahore one today.
