Our next amazing startup from 2020 Cohort is Better Speech Coach, a safe space that empowers you to overcome your public speaking fear.

The Team behind the startup 

I’m Teo and I am a public speaking trainer at Better Speech Coach. 

Over the last few years, I have gained experience in areas such as recruitment, training and coaching and I noticed that oftentimes, the people around me were afraid to speak their minds, to make their voice heard and communicate those things that really mattered to them. 

Why did you choose the StepFWD program?

We aspire to make the idea in our minds turn into something concrete and for this to happen, we need support on things such as sales, marketing, product development and refining the business model. 

StepFWD plays an important role in reaching this goal because of the mentorship and the events that are part of this project because it offers us the help needed to transform our idea into reality.

Why did you pick this project to work on?

The first time I spoke about Better Speech Coach was in March, at an event, Startup Weekend, where everyone could pitch an idea in front of others and work together with other participants to develop this idea over 3 days. 

I wanted to pitch an idea because I wanted to practice public speaking, as I know I have a need here, that it does not come naturally for me. 

Over time, I noticed that if I keep getting exposure to situations where I speak in public, it becomes easier. 

Therefore, our mission at Better Speech Coach is to stimulate growth in a safe space by helping people develop their ability to express themselves, to make their voice heard, and truly communicate those aspects that are born within them.
