Test Flight Pitch Practice (First Flight Venture Center)

Just about every early-stage startup knows they will need to hone their pitch to potential investors, customers and other interested parties. But where can you go to practice your pitch and get better before actually asking for money? That’s why we created Test Flight!

Test Flight is pitch practice for companies in the First Flight Venture Center entrepreneurial ecosystem. We invite an audience to observe pitches from up to two companies. The audience includes our Navigators, angel investors, non-dilutive funding groups, customers and other relevant reviewers to ensure the companies get meaningful, impactful feedback so your pitches continue to get better! Test Flight is open to the Startup Community!

This month, First Flight is proud to host;
