  • 11. Explaining Your Business Model<br />Business Model = Your Business In a Nutshell<br />If you cannot explain it in 50 words or less, you don’t yet fully understand your business.<br />Summarise, summarise, and summarise again.<br />Throw away verbiage, get to the essence (e.g. “We cure cancer”).<br />Concise, powerful summary needed:<br />Elevator pitch<br />Investor pitch<br />Customer pitch<br />Friends &amp; Family (“What is it that you do?”)<br />

  • 14. It’s a Numbers Game<br />Law of Supply v. Demand works against entrepreneurs/innovators:<br />1000s of ideas (Supply) v. Dozens of investors (Demand)<br />Investors are very choosy:<br />Specific niches / areas of interest (e.g. Health)<br />Specific investment criteria + thresholds<br />Specific stages of investment<br />Specific regions for investment<br />Do your research + target compatible sources of investment.<br />

  • 23. Pitching 101<br />Rule 7 – Remember the ‘end game’ and only tell enough of the full story.<br />You cannot assume they have read your business plan (99% won’t have).<br />But you don’t have time to tell them everything.<br />No one is going to write you a cheque after a single pitch.<br />So you need to tell them enough to get them interested and secure a follow-up meeting.<br />Objective of a pitch is to stimulate interest, not close the deal.<br />It is the start of a l-o-n-g process.<br />

  • 28. Risk v. Reward<br />
  • 29. Risk v. Reward<br />Remember your audience – THE INVESTOR.<br />Investors always want to see:<br />What they get for their $.<br />A billion dollar market.<br />10X return within 3-5 years.<br />Investors have a portfolio approach:<br />Of 10 investments, 7 will fail (money lost), 2 will break even (nil return), 1 will be breakaway hit (10X return).<br />They pick every investment for its potential to be breakaway hit.<br />
