Episode 2 – Moving Day

In Episode 2 we’re joining our Starters on the very first day at Starter Studio, when they will share their pitches with one another.

Starter Studio’s Director of Programming and Operations, Melissa Wasserman, coaches them on the building blocks of a good pitch: introduce yourself, clearly identify your product, what it does, as well as who it’s for and clearly define your business model and why the listener should care.

A question in everyone’s mind is “How do you plan to make money?” otherwise known as, “monetization strategy” in startup jargon. We'll cover this topic.

You like Starter Studio & the Accelerator Podcast - right? It’s cool to see these guys and gals get what might be considered an Ivy League startup education. It’s not easy. It’s a serious investment on their part - but it’s also a major investment on the part of the mentors, teachers, and coaches.

As you’ve heard, these Starters were selected because they showed the right stuff in Episode 1 and are receiving a full ride scholarship through Starter Studio. You’re also getting a full ride scholarship as a listener. So, how did we pull this off? Well, Bryan Orr and Josh Elledge of http://upendPR.com are thrilled to produce this audio show for you and all we ask for in terms of tuition on your part is simply your warm feelings toward the following corporate partners.

Major thank you to The University of Central Florida who does a LOT of work in terms of supporting the growing entrepreneurial ecosystem. UCF is the #2 largest university in the United States in terms of student population and in the top 15 in the category of “Most Innovative”. UCF is a great partner in education, technical resources, workforce development and grant support along with other noble missions locally - such as helping make Starter Studio happen with the support of the Office of Research and UCF Innovation Corps

The other Platinum Partner this season that’s helping make this all work is the audit, tax, and business advisory firm, Withum that specializes in helping tech startups. They are the go-to firm for all things tax, accounting and business consulting.

Another partner we want to thank is the law firm, Akerman.
