Think like your audience thinks.
Not doing so is where most presentations fail first. At least, that’s what the organizers of an upcoming “Pitching to Investors” event say. So they’re bringing an investor in to talk with startups about what investors generally like to see in a pitch.
For many in the capitalized world of today, entrepreneurs who want to make an idea go faster often find themselves faced with the task of pitching to investors. With more tech events than ever, you probably have a lot of experience pitching your company — you’ve done pitch competitions and pitch nights and elevator pitches.
But how much do you know about the way in which investors think about pitches? Do you know what they like and dislike? Have you considered what the “using a dull resume template” of pitching to investors is? Are you educating yourself on the various investment interests of different investors?
An event on Tuesday aims to answer all these questions and more. With presentations by Dan Gordon of Valhalla Partners and Levent Gurses from Movel, the event will explore how to pitch an idea to investors and how to build products for investor demos.
The night will also include a mock pitch, a Q&A section and the opportunity to network with other area startups.
The event will be held at the WeWork offices in Chinatown. You can buy tickets to attend now.
