This video shares a proven investor pitch deck that will get you on the right track to presenting your opportunity to investors whether angel or VC. This model pitch deck can be delivered in 10 minutes or less, if there are no interruptions. It’s designed to grab investors’ interest and give them just enough information to generate lots of questions once you’ve finished your presentation.
There are two parts to How To Pitch To Investors With 13 Slides
Part 1 covers the “What?” These are the 13 Slides that you should have in your investor pitch deck. Also, you’ll hear tips on how to get the investor excited about your opportunity.
Once you know what 13 Slides to use, Part 2 (begins at time code time code 00:27:27) will show you How To Pitch the deck. This is where you will learn how to have an amazing opening that will wake your audience up and grab their attention, a solid middle that will tell them who you are and what you do and a powerful, lasting, and memorable close that will leave them wanting more. Part 2 gives you tips and techniques on how to package the information about your company, product or service and deliver a really compelling investor pitch.
After watching this video, you will clearly understand and know how NOT to sound the S.A.M.E. as other presenters. And, you’ll be able to effectively use the Columbo Close, a powerful attention-getting tool, as the last words the investor will hear from you.
The information contained in this video is the result of the last 12 years of delivering workshops and coaching real people looking to raise capital. It’s the same information I give out in the first coaching session along with a homework assignment. This is not a sales presentation to get you to hire me. This video contains only “solid nourishment” and no “empty calories” to waste your time or money.
