While your faculty and student inventors are confident when it comes to their invention’s usefulness or capabilities, their pitching skills are often lacking. It can be cringeworthy as a researcher excitedly tells an exasperated investor a long-winded, technology-driven story that does little to address the market need, competition, scalability, time-to-market, and other critical factors for VCs.

In short, your inventors need your guidance to break down the invention and pitch it in a consumable way that doesn’t dwell on scientific minutia, and hits the critical factors investors care most about. Clarity and market focus are key, and that’s where the TTO is invaluable.

The University of South Carolina’s Technology Commercialization Office has guided hundreds of inventors in the start-up creation process, and as part of that process they provide seasoned mentoring on pitch deck creation and presentation. Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has tapped the leadership team at UofSC’s TCO to bring you this practical, skill-building webinar: Building A Pitch Deck: How the University of South Carolina’s TCO Assists Innovators in Building a “Fundable” Business Story, scheduled for next Wednesday, March 3rd.
