Let’s Hear From Some Dragons’ Chamber Alumni
Alex Wagner, Monster Foods, First Prize Winner Dragons’ Chamber 2019
Competing in the Dragons Chamber event was a real eye opener for our business. It forced us to take a very hard look at what we were trying to accomplish and how to best convey that vision to others. The entire experience of creating and testing pitches in the run up to the event helped polish that vision and gave us confidence in what we had been doing. Being able to see the transformation of a train wreck of a first pitch to winning the event was an incredible morale boost. If I hadn’t had the pressure of the event pushing me out of my comfort zone I don’t think I would have experienced this level of professional growth.
The most rewarding part of the experience was having the opportunity to sit down and speak with professionals that were willing to give honest and constructive feedback. Sometimes when you build something yourself, without much business experience, it’s hard to know if you are doing the right thing. Having this opportunity has really given me confidence in our future. If you are thinking about making a pitch this is definitely an experience that will help you grow.
“It was a privilege for Origin Yoga & Wellness to be part of the finalist of last year’s Dragon Chamber’s event at Meet Taipei 2019. We have great exposure through the pitch event and at our Meet Taipei booth, and really enjoyed meeting many other entrepreneurs. We also gained a few bookings from the event that leads to many other referrals. It’s amazing how the butterfly effect works!
Through the many pitch mentoring sessions, it really allowed me to understand the investor’s way of thinking. Having an investor’s view from outside in, it made me realize both the strength, weaknesses, and opportunities of the business from an objective standpoint. This experience led me to look at the hard questions in the business and tweak it to make it better. It also helped me clarify and articulate my long term vision for the business.
Dragon’s Chamber was my first public pitching experience. To experience the energy of pitching in front of judges and other startups was an eye-opening experience that helped me gain great confidence. Now I am now more prepared to pitch in front of other investors or collaborators in the future. The whole experience was invaluable, big thanks to the Dragon’s Chamber committee for this opportunity!”
