  • So before you pitch… Ask some important questions Where is my startup in its lifecycle? Do I understand my business model, metrics? Can I explain my growth strategy and justify my ask? Which TYPE of investor should I target?
  • So before you pitch… And do your homework… Decide what you look for in an investor Easy vs Hard, Dumb vs Smart Investigate who you want to ‘marry’ Which firm? Which Partner? Speak with people that know them Business partners (e.g. AWS), CEO’s in portfolio
