Successful entrepreneurs and investors know the power of a great pitch.
It conveys the power of your idea clearly and quickly and makes the investor want to hear more. Many will tell you WHAT makes a good investor pitch - a compelling story, a great deck and make sure you own the room. But, no one tells you HOW to do it. We do. We will work with you to create a great pitch, learn how to present it and put together an amazing deck.
You've worked on your product, your team and your vision. Now you need funding to help you scale. We will take you through the basics of how to develop a pitch to investors, how to build a deck and what you need to do to make the right first impression.
PITCHING, BUT NO BITES
You've had meetings, entered competitions and been through an incubator, but so far no traction. We work with you to take your existing pitch, tweak it to your target audience and help you clarify your story.
You had a successful seed or Series A and now you’re out to do it again. Don’t go out with the same pitch. Your business has changed, your story has grown and so have you. We will help you define the next chapter of your business for the next level of investor.
How does it work?
Four in-person or Skype sessions – each session is highly interactive with clear action items and personalized strategies not matter where you are in the funding cycle.
Picture the Story
We begin by listening to you about your ideal investor or client and how you are currently talking about your business. Then we storyboard the presentation to define all the elements of your pitch.
Build the Script
We move onto the messaging and wording of your pitch. Carefully chosen words can add impact, clarify your story and convey greater confidence in both you and your business.
Design the Deck
Now we work with you to translate your story to your deck. We ensure that the images on each slide support your story in a clear and compelling way. Then we pass it on to our graphic designers.
Deliver the Vision
Finally, we move on to you, your presence and presentation skills. Investors are not just looking for great businesses; they are looking for great entrepreneurs. Don’t let your presence undermine you when it counts the most.
One 11-slide deck to visually articulate your compelling story to investors.
