In Hawaii & want to start up an awesome cleantech company? The folks at Founder Institute (FI) may be able to help you. Founder Institute has a series of workshops coming up for people looking to jump into the entrepreneur world.

Startup Pitch Bootcamp

For example, on April 23, there’s “Startup Pitch Bootcamp.” From the FI website:

“If you have a strong idea that could be pitched more clearly, then join us for the Startup Pitch Bootcamp. In just three hours, this intensive workshop will help you improve your pitching skills and understand the components of a great pitch, providing plenty of practice until you get it right. Pitching is a key skill of every successful entrepreneur. How do you communicate your business clearly to employees, customers, and investors? What are some common pitching mistakes that make you look inexperienced? What is the best way to pitch your business?”

Meet fellow peers that are applying to the program or already enrolled, as well as the program Directors and Mentors. Socialize over drinks with other entrepreneurs at the same stage of development.
