Bravado mentees take a tech trek with local giants

April 5th, 2019 - a day to be remembered at Bravado HQ.

Our first ever Bravado Pitch Competition!

A select group from our first cohort of mentees joined Bravado for informational visits to three powerhouse companies in the Silicon Valley - Salesforce, Slack and G2.

The day was wrapped up with the inaugural Bravado Mentorship Program Pitch Competition.

10 students from Chico State’s Seufferlein Sales Program pitched to a panel of judges of local Bravado members. Each had 3 min to pitch one of two prompts.

  1. Challenge 1: Share how you’ve built trust & relationships in your life.
  2. Challenge 2: Convince your future VP of Marketing why Instagram is a better social network than Snapchat

After some serious deliberation, our esteemed panel of judges selected the top 3 based on:

  1. Content (Creativity, engagement, X-factor)
  2. Presentation (voice, delivery, eye contact, poise, body language)
  3. Technical (execution, structure, organization, clarity)

The winners are:

  1. 1st place: Hayley Weik, Sophomore
  2. 2nd place: Tani Rojas, Senior
  3. 3rd place: Jon Jones, Senior
