Mentors: 7 Tools to Achieve Outstanding Pitch Results

Do you mentor startups? Do you know a mentor?

Over the past few years, people have been asking me to share my tips and techniques for how I get results from entrepreneurs. I am pleased to announce that I am now hosting webinars and seminars for mentors who spend their time coaching and advising startups. Attendees will learn 13 proven and effective tools in less than 1 hour.

The tools I will share with you are practical and proven. During the past 10 years, I have worked with over 125,000 entrepreneurs and C-level executives around the world and personally delivered 12,000+ hours of 1:1 coaching. I am also an Industry Fellow at UC Berkeley's Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology, a guest lecturer and pitch coach at Wharton Entrepreneurship, featured on Kauffman Founders School and a published author.

You can register for this webinar below. Please share this with mentors in your network. I am confident they will thank you for mentioning Nathan Gold and this post.

If you want to see how they celebrated their year long program, check out this video:
