What people say about the masterclass
“This was an excellent masterclass providing a lot to takeaway for many different parts of the process of interacting with investors. It’s been sometime since I’ve reviewed how I structure my pitch and approach investors and it was good to re-evaluate this from the investor perspective.”
“I have felt quite lost in knowing how and what to pitch to investors, and I now feel far more informed. It’s been so valuable to have the content reflected back for me to see what I am not communicating.”
“It was useful to have a complete overview and specific tips about the crowd fundraising process. It’s helped me create some actionable points along with a good overview for the approach.”
In advance of the workshop, you will be asked to prepare a 60 second elevator pitch and come ready to present this. Ideally your pitch should:
- introduce your business by describing the problem you solve for customer
- outline who your customers are
- explain what your business has achieved to date
- detail how much money you are looking to raise and at what valuation
- and how you will use this investment to grow your business
Duration: 2.5 hours
Location: Online, using Zoom video conferencing
