How To Pitch To Your Company Or Idea To Investors (+ Pitching Opportunity)

Part 1: Join our panel of investors to see how to best position yourself or your company to get investors involved, get funded, and get moving. Learn what you need to do to receive funding for your startup or your idea. Our panel is a group of successful investors/VCs, dedicated to the formation and growth of startup companies.

Join us along with a panel of investors to discuss:

• What do angels look for?  What’s the mindset behind selecting different businesses? 

• How should an entrepreneur get the attention of a VC or angel investor? 

• What should a startup have in place in order to impress investors and make them want to commit?

• How does an entrepreneur know whether to choose angel or VC funding?  

• Learn this things and more + get your questions answered

 

Part 2: Watch as 5 entrepreneurs/startups pitch their projects to our panel of investors. Learn from their techniques to help prepare yourself for a future pitch! Then, as always, enjoy some quality networking.

    If you were a 'Yes' RSVP but didn't attend, Meetup records it as a 'no show' in your Meetup history. If the event shows you as such but you were in fact there, just let me know and I'll try to change it. Thanks to all who attended! See you next time!

    Slow, badly moderated, few tips about what counts

    October 9, 2013

    • Johan E.

      I would have liked more, info and discussions about how to pitch rather then when, to whom and if to pitch.

      1 · October 10, 2013

    • Peter F.

      I see. I thought we covered that actually, but I guess it could have been clearer and more precise. That was part of the idea behind having companies present is that you'd also see what they did right or wrong. Thanks for the feedback - next time the event should be even better :-)

    I liked the opportunity to learn about the investors and their profiles and to hear some pitches. Great concept that could be speeded up a little.
