Christoph Sollich


Next to the pleasure of working with Bianca and Christoph, I am each time amazed by the pure

efficiency and professionalism with which the two carry out their pitch coaching. Regardless whether they work with a team for five minutes or an hour,

there is always something that the two identify with great precision that can

be substantially improved. The two are also perfectly synchronous, with Bianca focused on

style and Christoph on content. They are the yin and yang of pitching.

Fee Beyer, Program Manager at hub:raum - Telekom Incubator, about Bianca and Christoph coaching their startups


Michael Ronen was/is a great host. Besides being very friendly and

open, he had interesting things to tell and made sure every one got

the best out of the acting workshop! Great experience!

about Michaels ActorPreneur workshop


Face it. You are no natural born pitcher, and likely boring to watch on stage. Bianca pushes

you out of the comfort zone, breaks down your pitch, and gives your performance a no-nonsense bare-fisted beating, before pulling

you back in again as a friendly pitcher-midwife, to a world where you are more

confident, more convincing and able to deliver a story people listen to.
