  • 10. … but they can get a formidable head start
  • 11. Fact no.2 Customers care about a great product. Great product delivers traction. Investors care about traction.
  • 12. The best pitch is not a pitch but a tagline: This is our product. This is our traction. Boom.
  • 13. Most common false positive in startup land Doing the investor’s and mentor’s work instead of your own
  • 14. Traction = Quality of execution / resources (time + money) Time: 3-6 months Money: EUR 25-50K Quality of execution: ???? you
