Pitching To Investors

The average length of a funding pitch to investors is ten minutes. I was recently a judge at a local event where the time limit for each startup was two minutes. Yet a big complaint I hear from investors is that startup founders often waste their time and forget to get to the point. I suspect the real problem is that they are often pitching the wrong point.

If you start by pitching your extended life story, that’s the wrong point. Equally bad is an extended pitch on your new disruptive technology. Investors are more interested in your solution and your business, rather than your technology.


Attend the SBDC North San Diego County FREE workshop on Pitching To Investors!!!

You could be building the next Google - but investors won't know it if your pitch doesn't sing. Topics covered during this workshop include types of investors, understanding the overall investment process, knowing when a company is ready for investment, creating critical communication tools, outline a standard 10 minute pitch, and how to avoid pitch mistakes.  Ths workshop is for entrepreneurs who want to improve their skill at preparing and delivering effective investor presentations.

Held the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
SBDC North San Diego County
1823 Mission Ave, Oceanside, CA 92058
