Below are some tips and tricks collated in order to summarize some of the best tips we believe can make a huge difference in the outcome of your investor meetings.
Perfect your pitch. Make sure you have your elevator pitch ready. Elevator pitches are short and simple. Viable to keep only the most important and catchy information in there. Try and concise all the important information on your business plan and investor presentation in a catchy 2 minute pitch (think “twitter bio?”)
Your PowerPoint presentation has to be precise and factual. Make sure your information is not only perfectly in order but also presentable and easy on the eye (arithmetic flow). The executive summary is key to wrap it all up. Be creative and try to include some of the most important factors:
After wrapping up the bits and pieces, your work will not be completely done as of yet. An important factor that many overlook is listening. Give your potential investors the chance to contribute from questions to ideas and suggestions. Try to be open to all what they put on the table, note it down and work on it. After all, should things move forward, they will be your partners and accepting ideas and suggestions will elaborate respect and teamwork in making your project a successful venture.
Finally, remember the key points and make your pitch and presentation something one can reminisce about. Tell a story, your story, in the simplest way and use visuals while you are at it. Be passionate about what you are delivering. Passion will get you to places.
