Investor Connect Podcast

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

In pitching your deal to an investor, it helps to know your investor first.

What type of investor are they -- angel, family office, high net worth, or venture capital?

What is their investment thesis?  Are they swinging for the fences, or do they want to make a series of doubles and triples?

In your pitch, emphasize the return that is appropriate for that investor.

Have they invested in startups before? What deals have they done? Were they the same or different from your deal?

In your pitch, explain how your deal compares to other deals if they have experience.

How much do they know about your market or application?

In your pitch, spend time describing the market and how your product fits into the landscape.

What angle would be best for this investor? Should you focus on the market, the traction, or some other factor?

The best way to pitch an investor is to know something about them and adjust your pitch accordingly.
