The Free Library’s Business Resource and Innovation Center wants to teach Philly entrepreneurs a thing or two about pitching.

Next week, the Parkway Central Library will launch the Pitch Corner, a new resources and space for innovators where they can hone their business pitches and strengthen elevator pitches about their assets and aptitudes. Entrepreneurs can record their pitches in front of video camera and large backdrop in the space, and they’ll be able to re-watch the pitch to improve their performance. 

Those in the market for a job are also welcome to drop by. Business librarians will be available to help with mock interviews. Business owners and nonprofit workers are also welcome to practice their presentations in the space.

The Pitch Corner will launch with a “Get Your Pitch On” workshop on Wednesday, May 17th that will include lessons on the dos and don’ts of pitching and team exercises.

Beginning May 18th, the new space will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on first Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m.
