  12. 12. Things to remember ● Be short and focused - If you have more material, leave it in an appendix and refer to it only if necessary - The VCs are interested in you and your business. The presentation itself is only a tool to help you communicate with them. ● Be straight and to the point - Help the VC to understand what the company does - Use simple slides – complicated graphics and too much text leave your listeners to struggle with what they are seeing instead of listening to what you are saying. ● Be efficient - Leave time for quality Q&A – tough questions do not mean the VC is not interested, they usually mean the opposite! ● Be focused with your use of financials - Focus your financials on key questions: How much money are you seeking to raise? What will you use it for? How long will it last and what will it enable you to achieve? 12
