David Rose, a serial entrepreneur turned serial investor, has raised millions of dollars by pitching powerpoint presentations to VCs and also has closely analysed the funding of many companies. Rose in this video, explains how/what things are needed to get investment for a startup. To pitch an angel investment, an entrepreneur gets just 15 mins or less, while for a VC it’s not more than 30 mins. Given the restricted time frame, pitching becomes a tough nut to crack.
What does a VC look in the company before investing? How do you get the investor’s attention? How can you play the ‘emotional’ card without letting them know? David explains every crucial point required for startups to get some serious investment.
In Esther Dyson’s words “David is a master at turning presentations from “before” to “after.”
