If you would like personalized help, please use the calendar below to schedule a 1:1 with Allison. Reasons to schedule a 1:1 can include:

  • Trouble defining a clear, central narrative.
  • Struggling to communicate how your solution directly addresses the problem you defined.
  • Want help uncovering a key message or emotional connection that will resonate with investors.
  • Coaching on how to confidently introduce yourself and command attention.
  • Cutting down on text and graphically supporting the "so what" of your slides.
  • Pitch practice with personalized, concrete, direct feedback.
  • PowerPoint mechanics and slide design.

I liked the honest feedback and how in-depth we went into understanding segments, competitive markets, and areas of focus. Every underrepresented founder should use this service!
