How to make a Great Titan Fast Pitch

Sixty seconds is not a lot of time but as you will find out in this edition of the CSUF Entrepreneurship Insider there is a tried and true formula that will help you make your best pitch possible.

The Titan Fast Pitch competition is less than a month away (October 21) and I encourage every university and high school student that I meet to join this competition as a competitor and I hope you will do the same. Being able to inspire someone with an idea in sixty seconds, which is how long competitors in the Titan Fast Pitch have to make their pitches, is a crucial skill that every entrepreneur needs to develop.

In a post we published earlier today titled Start with Why – How to make a Great Pitch, we discuss the importance of inspiring people with why you do what you do. For the Center for Entrepreneurship, we believe that entrepreneurs create the future. That is the “why” for us.

As you’ll read in our article, effective leaders follow that up with “how” and “what”. From our point of view entrepreneurs are the engine for growth in our global economy because they create products and services that are new and demonstrably improve the lives of people in the community. We educate and coach people so that they can be the best entrepreneurs that they can be.

And that is the heart of making a good sixty second pitch. Why, how, and what; it’s that simple.

If you are a student or know of one that you think has an entrepreneurial spirit please tell them about the Titan Fast Pitch competition. Even if you aren’t a student, we hope to see you at the competition cheering on the next generation of entrepreneurs!
