Podium Star helps Korean Startups master their Pitching skills

If the thought of public speaking gives you sweaty hands and wobbly legs, you’re not alone. Stage fright is not an uncommon thing amongst many entrepreneurs. Whether in form of a crowd or only a handful of business partners – strong presentation and persuasion skills are the key to a perfect pitch. However, many are not able to convey their message due to nervousness and panic. Podium Star is a monthly pitch competition that helps Korean startups master their pitches.


Why Startups should participate in the Pitch Competition

  1. Storytelling – In order to convince your counterpart, your pitch needs strong storytelling. Having a great story makes it easier for your audience to follow along your presentation. PowerPT who is also the host of the pitch competition, provides a pitch workshop for participating startups. The presentation company offers consulting on how to create compelling messaging and storytelling. Startups also receive mentorship about how to attract investors and customers alike.
  2. Practice – As with every other skill, practice is the key! Getting comfortable with the stage and audience will improve your pitch and help to overcome your nervousness. At the monthly Podium Star pitch competition, startups are able to practice their presentation in front of an audience and judge.
  3. Feedback – Every Podium Star event comes with a new set of judges from different backgrounds. Startups receive feedback from different industry experts after their presentation. Not only is feedback useful for improving your pitch, but also helps you to prepare for questions that future investors might come up with
