You might have killer technology, a can’t miss value proposition for customers plus a team with demonstrable experience and execution skills, but if you can’t get your business fundamentals across to potential investors clearly and concisely you’ll fall at the first hurdle of the funding race.

Please note that this event is intended exclusively for startup executives and entrepreneurs seeking funding.

“The VC 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?
• The successful funding flow – from idea to A round
• The Top 10 Funding Pitch mistakes to avoid!
• What VCs and Angels look for from a Funding Pitch
• Creating the Killer Funding Pitch for YOUR startup
