In a recent development, The Big Data Exchange (BDE) had a successful practice pitching session at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN) with the UCLAN investment readiness team from the investment readiness programme. The pitch was analysed by Robert Sheffrin and Christopher Wynne, both of whom provided valuable feedback and guidance to the BDE team.
The practice pitching session proved to be a useful opportunity for the BDE team to refine their pitch and prepare for future presentations to potential investors. With the guidance of Sheffrin and Wynne, the team was able to make a few small tweaks to the script, design of slides, and length of the presentation. These adjustments helped to enhance the overall impact of the pitch and ensure that the team’s message was effectively communicated.
