It's Time for Pitch and Grow IX - Beat the Heat at the Lake!

Practice makes perfect. Remember that from grade school? Well it still applies. If you are starting a business and plan to raise money, don't practice your pitch on the investor. That is what Pitch and Grow from the Technology Association of Iowa is all about. Practicing your pitch in front of people who will give you constructive feedback. Believe me, you will be better off when it comes to the real pitch for money.

There is still time to sign up to pitch your business with just two weeks to go until the Pitch and Grow — Iowa Great Lakes edition! Sign-ups from entrepreneurs at virtually any stage in the business life cycle in the areas of investment, sales or business development are accepted.
