SharpFede Communicator is a mobile communication application that centralizes all communication mediums on one device and links them to a user’s mobile number. Unlike the competition, SharpFede has an extremely intuitive user interface, has a familiar SMS-based curation style, is comparatively small in size, incorporates standard social features that have largely been ignored and can be installed on virtually any device/appliance that has an interactive display panel.

  • Note any gaps so you can engage the investor to help you find the missing person. Why these people will make this business happen. What have they done in the past that makes them appropriate for this new venture? Show Board Members and existing investors to add more credibility to your story.
  • To demo or not to demo! Depending on time, ask. Focus on what you product does and how it does it. Talk about the benefits people will get from the product. Feature---Benefit---Reason. Doing live demos can be fraught with anxiety and too many places to fail. So never do a live demo in the first meeting with an investor. Never! There are three ways to demo your product or service without being on-line. 1-Get your programmers to make everything run locally on your computer without needing an Internet connection at all. 2-Safer:Use SnagIt to capture Web pages that will play back in off-line mode, at least for navigation purposes. 3-BIG Secret: Use Camtasia to record a demo and edit out all of the extra movements and unnecessary screens. Turn off the voice and play back the video of the demo while you do a live voice over guiding your watcher every step of the way. Make the demo under 3 minutes or 2 minutes would be even better.
  • Bee Docs Timeline 3D (only on MAC) allows you to present the details in your timelines as well as the surrounding historical events as context.
