About PONY Express
The philosophy behind PONY Express is the concept of risking something. The 1860s American PONY Express was a mail delivery service where young PONY riders like Buffalo Bill risk their lives delivering a message. Same today. It might feel daunting to present in the board room, pitch to a panel of serious investors or a room full of industry peers – will you be impactful enough to present your ideas? With the right training, nothing has to be left to chance. [Please note: NO PONIES ARE HARMED IN THE PROCESS.]
