Telling Your Story

Wednesday, January 19 at 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Virtual Event

In this seminar, we'll learn how to adjust the language we use to describe our business ventures based on audience, and we'll take an in-depth look at giving a business pitch and writing a grant.

Charla Triplett, Senior Venture Partner for Expert Dojo and President of Catalyze, will help us find our investor mindset. We'll learn from Charla, who is an active seed investor, what funders are looking for in your pitch, and we'll share tips on how to tell a startup story that can attract the right funding partners.

Kate Petcosky-Kulkarni, Director of Strategic Research Initiatives at the University of Oregon, will offer an overview of grant writing and development with a specific focus on grants for research business development and innovation. We'll learn from Kate how to approach grant writing, understanding persuasive writing, and writing for reviewers. Attendees will come away with knowledge of grantspersonship, effective grant writing practices, and how to best work productively with funding agencies.

This seminar is part of the Women's Innovation Network, an initiative facilitated by the UO Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation and cosponsored by Onward Eugene.
