How should you orchestrate an investor pitch meeting? What makes a great pitch deck? What are good questions you can ask to bring out — and handle — the investors' objections and make the close? Getting the perspective of a venture fund can put you one step ahead in the game.
On May 16, join Shrina Kurani — Associate at Better Ventures — for an engaging discussion on the evolving fundraising landscape and an interactive pitch workshop. Collaborate with fellow attendees and have an opportunity to pitch your startup and receive feedback. Shrina will share with you what they look for as a fund, plus tips on how to prepare for a successful investor meeting.
Here are some of the topics we will discuss:
- Overview of the funding milestones: pre-seed to Series A
- The criteria used by an early-stage venture fund
- What to highlight in your pitch deck
- Tips for a successful investor meeting + how to make the close
And much more!
