Welcome to the Pitch Practice forum.
Ideas are a dime a dozen, and the best ideas are those that have been refined after a significant amount of effort. The worst ideas are those that have never been tested, and the best way to test an idea, to begin with, is to simply ask the community, "what do you think?"
That's the spirit of this forum. To ask and give advice on new project and business ideas, to give you a space to practice your pitch, and to help you build something valuable faster.
While listening to feedback, make sure you take everything everyone says with a grain of salt, but do not ignore valuable feedback. Successful founders need to be honest with themselves. In time, if you're seriously passionate about an idea, you will have spoken to so many people, ironed out all the kinks, and you will be the expert in why your proposal will solve a valuable challenge.
Don't be afraid of people 'taking your idea'. If it's so simple that someone else can take it, then it's probably not a great idea, or it's so early that it's neither a good or bad idea. Execution is everything.
The best way to get feedback, even for the most recent and underdeveloped ideas, is to get a webcam and record yourself giving a 30-second Gaddie pitch. This is a master skill to develop. If you can't define your Gaddie pitch for an idea, then you don't have an idea at all!
One of the best resources I've seen on developing a pitch is by Alan Jones, which you should read here.
Post the pitch to YouTube with a private link, create a new thread in Pitch Practice, and ask for feedback.
The best thing about Pitch Practice is you don't need to wait for a local pitch competition to test your ideas with the world. You can test and develop your ideas right here, today.
So record your pitch, and ask away!
