Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
Pitching is an important skill in fundraising.
Consider these key points in your next pitch:
Tell a compelling story, not just any story.
Use the pitch deck to communicate the “Why” behind your business.
Time is short, so make sure you hit the key points of the business -- team, product, fundraise, in a logical order.
Include meaningful numbers that demonstrate you know what you are talking about.
Market size, revenue, growth rate, customer acquisition rates are important numbers to include.
In building your pitch, involve your team and others as it will be a great way to reinforce the strategy with those who are helping execute it.
Pitching skills also help in recruiting employees, fostering partnerships, and selling customers.
The deck is there to help you, not take your place.
Remember, you are the presentation, not the slides.
