The Exit Pitch: How I Hid Behind a Curtain to Meet Eric Schmidt
Tech and startup conferences are battlefields. Everyone attending is in the same competition. They all want to network with the investors and thought leaders of their industry. Let’s face it, even if you come completely prepared (which you won’t), you’re just one person out of hundreds all vying for face time. Not to mention that you spent all your money on the ticket, plane and hotel for the conference and you need to get results to justify the trip. Don’t be just another person with just another pitch. You’ve got to be gangsta, you’ve gotta hustle and you’ve gotta do targeted recon work. Here’s how I pitched to Eric Schmidt: Let me set the mood. It’s early June and I’m in Berlin, with the goal of attending the NOAH conference. I’m coughing up a lung, jet-lagged as hell and stuck in bed with a 101 degree fever. I’m exhausted because my Airbnb is loud, has no curtains and my mattress has springs poking out of it, but at $90 a night, it was a bargain.
