DigiFest South: "DigiPitch" - Bigger & Better


DigiFest South turns up DigiPitch to a whole new level. Up until now there has never been an opportunity to refine and improve a pitch before presenting it. In August, DigiFest South will host a Preliminary Pitching Event at Bossier Arts Council.
There will be two workshop days in which entrepreneurs are given access to business professionals from all areas of commerce. The last day, August 22, will be like a trial pitch before entrepreneurs present at DigiFest South in September.

            Being able to summarize distinctive aspects of your service or product in a manner that is interesting to others should be a necessary skill in business. It's one of the most effective approaches available to influence both new consumers and clients. Now budding entrepreneurs will have access to tips, feedback, and guidance on establishing the perfect pitch for their product or business. The experience will be both enriching and educational. It is truly something we, here at Bossier Arts Council, are looking forward to hosting. It is something budding entrepreneurs don’t want to miss out on.  You never know who you may run into in an elevator so why not be prepared with your pitch?

If you would like to request additional information on being a part of the G60 Elevator Pitching Event contact 318-741-8310, or email Katie@bossierarts.org. To find out about DigiPitch please visit http://digifestsouth.com/digipitch.
