Abstract:   This paper applies the pitch template developed by Faff (2017) for an academic research topic in venture capital finance, with a focus on government fundraising in Central and Eastern European countries. The template summarizes the key elements forming the structure of any research proposal. After an introduction and brief commentary on the pitch, a personal reflection on the “process of research in business course” experience is presented.
