End: 03/09/2010 - 8:30pm

The Funding Pitch Workshop was peppered with practical advice that I've been putting into practice since attending. In particular, walking through the 10 slide deck and understanding all of the opportunities to provide evidence to back up the business assumptions has changed my approach to writing a compelling presentation, Mike McGrath, CEO, Yosho
The vast majority of startups never get the opportunity to pitch their idea to potential investors, so when you do get the chance you shouldn’t throw it away by talking about the wrong things. So if you’ve not successfully raised venture capital before, attending this workshop is a must, to give you critical insights into what information VCs and Angels are looking for, and how they want it presented.
Topics covered in this interactive workshop include:
- Is my idea/business fundable?
- What VCs and Angels look for from a Funding Pitch & why
- Valuations & who get what %?
- The successful funding flow from idea to A round
- Creating the Killer Funding Pitch for YOUR startup
Guest Investor: TBD (see below for bio).
