ABOUT THIS EVENT
Of the many crunch points in the life of a successful startup, perhaps nothing looms larger than the investor pitch. As angel and VC financing is vital for many startups to achieve their objectives, being able to communicate a compelling vision of the company to potential investors is a critical skill for founders.
This webinar workshop will feature a panel of accomplished pitch consultants and early-stage investors, all of them expert in helping founders succeed when the stakes are at their highest. Together, the panel will address the essentials of investor pitching, including the following:
- Elements of a successful investor pitch
- Techniques for preparing and getting comfortable with pitching
- Understanding what investors are looking for and how to address their concerns
The event will include breakout sessions with the panelists to provide a more hands-on opportunity for skills development.
It will be a valuable opportunity whether you are currently pitching to angels or VC investors or are looking to do so in the future.
