Doug Villhard - The Art of the 30 Second Pitch
---
Second semester of Collinsville Triad CEO kicked off with another session with Doug Villhard and Edwardsville Triad CEO. It's incredible to watch the pieces come together for students as they left for Christmas break. Their assignment was to 'pitch' their business ideas to friends/family/potential customers and gather feedback.

This kickoff session allowed students to share what information they gathered from individuals for their businesses. Some students were affirmed in their ideas, some realized they need to pivot directions completely or just slightly. Some realized that the more research and understanding of a customer, they more success potentially at launch.

This lead into how do you actually 'pitch' your product in 30 seconds? It is an art that Doug outlined for students:
Problem: Significance of the problem?
Solution: Adequacy of the solution?
Secret Sauce: Uniqueness of the solution?
Call to Action: Propulsion to act?

Students then took their ideas hands on and workshopped their problem. It's awesome to see students get passionate about an idea that will come to life by May 1 at their Trade Show.

Thank you Doug for the foundation you are providing to these young entrepreneurs.
