Few people have earned entrepreneurial merit badges that this week’s guest has collected. Greg Coticchia, the Director of the University of Pittsburgh Innovation Institute’s “Blast Furnace” student accelerator program, is now giving students the benefit of his experience, giving back to the community after having been in startup mode for decades.
Greg has raised nearly $100 million in funding for his various startups, earned some massive exits, and had some...learning opportunities along the way. Seven years ago, he settled down for a one year contract with the University’s new Blast Furnace program, and now he’s taking applications for BF Cohort #6 and teaching MBA students about marketing.
This week, he sits down in the Epicast Studios and tells Scot MacTaggart his secrets of pitching anyone - from an angel investor to a large client. Don’t miss it!
