Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
In the movie The Godfather, Marlon Brando plays Don Corleon, the leader of the Corleon family.
At one point someone asks him why he made a certain decision.
The Godfather replied, “Everything is personal.”
In fundraising, ‘everything is personal.’

Yes, there’s the pitch followed by questions.

You must have that to gain the investment.
Everything is personal.
