Being pitched at, often feels like being picked-up.
Investors don't want you to be boring or sleazy or worse, feel manipulated and end up with buyer's remorse.

There is a WEALTH of great stuff online about how to structure a great pitch. So this is not one of those. This is a peek into the subtle ways to win the long game between investors and inventors.

[This deck probably won't make much sense if you weren't there, but for my amazing crowd at #SparkUp - thank you, hope this is a handy revival].

Books mentioned: Think like a Freak - Dubner and Levitt; Anti-Fragile- Nassim Nicholas Taleb; Art of War - Sun Tzu and the War of Art - Steven Pressfield; Sherry Turkle - Alone Together (the robot jealousy story)
