Learn to Pitch to Investors

Tue 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM

Pitching to investors is an art form, but every quality investor pitch follows a common narrative arc. An effective pitch needs to quickly provide business context, address perceived risks, paint a picture of a future return for the investor, and set the stage for the Q & A after the pitch. The course will be taught by an experienced entrepreneur who has raised two rounds of angel capital and successfully prepared numerous clients for angel, venture capital, and competitive pitches. In this course, you will learn: - the common elements that every investor pitch must contain - to tailor a pitch deck for a long (15+ minute) or short (< 10 minute) timeframe - how to structure a pitch for angel investors vs. venture capital - to optimize your pitch when your business is competing in a crowded market - typical pitfalls that undermine an investor pitch - ways to prepare for the Q & A session following the pitch - strategies for discussing valuation and term sheet - techniques for handling questions you aren’t prepared to answer
