How to pitch a VC or Angel and get funded

2,064

Published on

How to pitch a VC,
Content by Dave McClure.
Design by SlidesThatRock (which I really like and use)
If you want to know how to get funded by a venture capital or angel investor this will help. Use this deck design and win a startup weekend (which we did) or get accepted into an Accelerator program like 500 startups, Y combinator or Techstars. Even works as a great pitch deck to explain your lean startup assumptions for early fundraising.
