Topic: Financing
Do's and Don'ts of an Investor Pitch An entrepreneur never knows when he or she may be called upon to pitch their company to a potential investor. It may be verbal, Internet based or printed media. It may come at a social gathering or meeting someone in the hallway at a conference who is just looking for a place to get some coffee. Or, it may come under very controlled conditions like pitching to a group of Angel or Venture Capital Investors at an Investor Event. However it may happen, you will only have one chance to make a good first impression. An entrepreneur needs to understand the overall business process, be able to recognize when the company is ready for outside investment, the critical communication tools and how to outline a standard 10-minute pitch. Sanjay Dhole. SBDC Business Analyst, will explain what you need to have to always be ready!
