AT THE EDTECH THEMED LAUNCH SMART CLINIC, STARTUPS PRESENT A 20-MINUTE PITCH FOR FEEDBACK FROM OUR PANEL OF EXPERTS + THE AUDIENCE.

Launch Smart Clinics are a great place for startups to get constructive feedback on their pitch from a board-of-directors-level panel of experts and thoughtful audience members. The focus on early stage ventures encourages a sympathetic and supportive atmosphere. Audience and panel feedback often helps presenters understand their problems and offers useful tips and solutions.

Even if you’re not quite ready to present, we encourage entrepreneurs to attend the clinics to see what our panel of experts (investors and others) are looking for in a pitch, what kind of questions they ask and their suggestions for refining the business plan.
