• Creating a one sheet
• Who is buying what
• Who to target with your project
• How to add cache and marketable elements to your project

Following the personalized coaching sessions, the Mentee will attend three to four hand chosen 1+1 meetings with WFF Content Summit guests to pitch their project.
