Ready to Test Your Pitch in the Deep End?

Pitch your story to top broadcast and business press at 10Fold ’s annual Media SharkTank charitable event. SharkTank, now in its eighth year, allows executives to “test” their business pitch and receive feedback from the experts. Join us on October 25th at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco to deliver your three-minute pitch to an expert media panel who will tell you what did and didn’t work in telling your story and how to do it better next time.  This type of feedback is invaluable and rarely offered.

Who will be there?
10Fold has lined up some of the most coveted, top-tier ‘Media Sharks’ in business and broadcast journalism for first-hand feedback on your pitch. The panelists confirmed so far are:

  1. Pitch the Media SharkTank:

Participating companies are asked to donate only $1,995 for the opportunity to interact with the media, in this educational format by participating in the SharkTank media pitch. By making this donation, the executive spokesperson will present to eight of our elite judges (four judges per session and two sessions) and may even have the opportunity to catch a story of their own.

  1. Not ready to pitch? Attend the Media SharkTank reception:

Network with the media panelists and B2B tech executives while enjoying a cocktail reception and hors d’ oeuvres by making a $595 donation to the San Francisco BayKeeper. Industry analysts and VCs in-the-know also regularly attend 10fold’s Media SharkTank event, so don’t be square!

All proceeds from the event will be donated to the San Francisco BayKeeper chapter, which keeps our bay and the communities that rely on it safe and healthy.
