I had the pleasure of mentoring the 2013 class of entrepreneurs at Founder Institute Chicago. Here is the presentation I delivered on "How to Pitch Venture Investors". The lesson provides high level guidance on: (i) how to sharpen your elevator pitch; and (ii) what points to drive home in your initial conversation. This lesson helps entrepreneurs learn what venture capitalists are listening for from startup pitches, and how to communicate your story in a way that maximizes your chance for funding.
The matching video for the audio part of the presentation can be found at https://vimeo.com/57294339. For more lessons, read my 101 Startup Lessons on the Red Rocket website (www.RedRocketVC.com).
