Pitching Science (offered by Medicine by Design)

May 1, 2019 all-day

To take a discovery or technology from lab to market, researchers need to be able to persuade investors of its value and market potential.  This workshop will give selected graduate students and post-doctoral fellows the tools they need to develop and deliver an effective and accessible three- to five-minute pitch to secure that crucial first round of funding. This program is delivered by Medicine by Design with limited spaces reserved for OIRM trainees located outside of Toronto.

This multi-day workshop will include:

  • a half-day session focused on developing your pitch and polishing your performance in a small-group setting (maximum 15 participants);
  • two one-on-one 60-minute coaching check-ins via phone/Skype;
  • a rehearsal;
  • a final pitch competition in a safe and friendly environment, facilitated by experienced communication professionals from Talk Boutique.

Toronto based trainees should apply direction to MbD. OIRM trainees located outside of Toronto must complete the OIRM application form and will automatically be considered for travel support. Deadline to apply is April 19, 2019.
