BIR Training Center Hosts Its First Pitch Deck Competition as Part of Applied Business
Administration program.

CHICAGO, Illinois. BIR Training Center, founded in 1993, is an institution of postsecondary
education with four locations in Chicago specializing in a variety of occupational and academic
fields, including English for Specific Purposes, Applied Business Administration, and University
Test Preparation. BIR Training Center hosted its first Student Pitch Deck competition for Applied
Business Administration students. Students had an opportunity to deliver a pitch to a panel of
investors and faculty, discuss their business ideas in detail, and answer questions from the
audience.

“This competition offered a strong opportunity for students to gain business English proficiency
and the chance to apply their rich life experiences as international students to pitch some
compelling start‐up ideas”, noted Mr. Christopher Nyren, founder of the education focused
investment and consulting firm Educated Ventures. “BIR students have demonstrated significant
accomplishments in business English and presented business ideas with the potential for success
outside of the academic environment. Participating in the evaluation panel for this group of BIR
graduates was stimulating and rewarding,” stated Mr. Dovid Gurevich, the business coach and
operating partner at Holding Advisors, a full‐service Mergers and Acquisitions advisory and
management consulting firm. “The initial Student Pitch Deck presentations by international
students at BIR Training Center were a great success. Students had to learn business English skills
including American entrepreneurship and how to organize a convincing presentation with
visuals. Students received invaluable feedback from investors,” said Dr. Kenneth Ehrensaft,
Higher Education Specialist at BIR Training Center “These types of events provides students with
a real world ability to receive feedback on their ideas and additionally key insight from various
financial professionals,” noted Mr. Tom F. Garber, one of two founding partners of SilkRoadIB
and the director of True Capital Financial Partners. “With more youth turning to
entrepreneurship around the globe, the Applied Business Administration Program at BIR Training
Center is the perfect environment for students to upgrade their Business English skills,” added
Dr. Feliks Kravets, Business English Manager at BIR Training Center

The opportunity for students to receive feedback from industry experts makes this type of event
an essential part of learning, which greatly benefits startup‐minded students by providing them
with the opportunity to enhance their business communication skills.
