WatchPitch Podcast: For Start-Ups & Investors
By Trey Scott
Episode 15: Kevin Sandlin – Founder and Author of Pitch Practice at Atlanta Tech Village
July 26, 2018
My guest is Kevin Sandlin, author and founder of Pitch Practice located in one of the country’s fourth largest entrepreneurial tech centers in Atlanta, Georgia. I caught up with Kevin during his regular Friday Pitch Practice sessions that he offers for free to entrepreneurs. His invitation sparked our follow-up conversation that make for an inspired lesson in the craft of a pitch after hosting nearly 3000 of them over the last 5-years… let’s get started.
We learned from Kevin the fundamental building blocks of the pitch, the importance of pitching early to get feedback and the understanding that a start-up is actually not a business but an opportunity to build a machine with a repeatable process and predictable results with your customers.
