Pitching and Beyond Pitching. This workshop is for designers, artists and design students and it helps you pitch your creations to buyers, partners and investors.

The workshop consists of three parts:

1. Pitching and Networking Workshop

2. Introduction to Business Model (optional, but recommended)
