More Pitch Tips

  • Entrepreneurs with "low" pre-money valuations get much more attention, excitement, and momentum from investors.
  • Everyone knows that Angels and VCs invest "close to home." YET, most will invest in ANY team with a personal connection to the investor
  • Of all the factors influencing who gets investment, by far the most important (and usually unlisted) is "One of us already knows you."
  • A portfolio Company CEO said to me "I don’t pitch angel groups to get money, I pitch to make connections. The money comes from introductions to people I pitch 1-on-1 ."
