Workshop: The Anatomy of the Pitch Deck

Arteen has always had the entrepreneurial bug. Before investing in enterprise software, commerce platforms, and marketplaces with Karlin Ventures, Arteen spearheaded the launch of Built In LA, an online community for digital entrepreneurs and innovators. Prior to Built In LA, his passion for startups flourished while helping run operations at Excelerate Labs, now Techstars Chicago. Arteen graduated magna cum laude from the University of Arizona with a BSBA in Finance and Entrepreneurship.


When not with startups, Arteen sits on the board of TEDxVenice Beach and is a supporter of TWLOHA, a non-profit raising awareness and support for those struggling with mental health. Arteen spends too much time in coffee shops, on or in front of stages, on his bicycle, and on airplanes. He can be found at @arteeninLA.
