PAST events

“Prior to attending Pitch Perfect I was absolutely clueless on how to create a Pitch Deck. I googled examples, watched videos online, but still was unable to fully comprehend how to properly execute one. Each class was very informative, and doing things step by step with exercises made it so much easier for me to understand.”


“I enjoyed the workshop especially the time spent crafting our message. This was time well spent and I appreciate the professionalism provided by XLR8HI.”


“I’m grateful for the years of expertise brought together for this course. It was helpful to sit in person with other entrepreneurs, learning from expert lawyers who are clearly passionate about assisting new businesses.”


“Being a business owner with experience in a franchise business, I didn’t realize how much more there is to successfully launching a true startup from scratch. I am impressed and energized by what I have learned in this class.”
