Biocat and CataloniaBio & HealthTech launched the Pitch Training program specifically for projects and startups to improve the pitch they give investors, corporate venture capitalists and scouts from the life sciences and healthcare sector. The program had to be held online due to the pandemic, renamed the E-Pitch Training Program.

Participants had two personalized training sessions, getting feedback on their business idea, key messages, storytelling and slides, as well as their performance on screen.

The training was led by Luis Ruiz-Avila and Diana Sansó, renowned experts from the sector who helped improve both the format and content of the messages in a virtual environment.

There were 16 groups that took part in the program and, according to the post-training survey, they all rated it very highly (4 out of 5).
