All faculty may attend the My Pitch: Building Research Collaborations event.

February 21, 2019

9:30 -  11:00am

McMaster University Hall, 211

Successful researchers explore and build partnerships across many sectors with the goal of developing broad-based, collaborative relationships to help advance industry, social innovation, and their research. Developing and delivering a compelling pitch is a key element to initiating partnerships.

Mitacs’ Director of Strategic Accounts and Business Development, Rebecca Bourque, will lead a hands-on session to guide you, the researcher, in developing the research-specific story that you would pitch to a prospective partner. Once you have created a narrative, you will practice your pitch and receive constructive comments to help refine your message and delivery.

To ensure everyone receives one-on-one consultation throughout the workshop, the sessions are limited to 12 participants.  All participants must arrive to the workshop with their identified potential partner in mind.
