Crafting Your 5-Minute Capital Pitch
Limited Capacity seats available

Most investors and capital have prerequisites to investment that are pretty well known but often not addressed effectively up front. Come along to this session listen, learn, and hear the tips, tricks, and tools for taking your capital pitch down to 5 minutes and by doing so keeping your messaging simple, focused, and straightforward.

This approach has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for dozens of entrepreneurs who have done the work to follow the simple guidelines because it takes what was a very intimidating and jargon-filled process and turns it into a simple, logical, straight forward explanation of the opportunity. This raises the entrepreneur's confidence and comfort, which can increase their chances of gaining that trust and investment.

When it comes to raising investment capital we never know if or when a conversation could lead to a check. For this reason entrepreneurs must learn to craft an effective narrative that communicates the company's value, no matter the setting.

Los fundadores de una empresa conocen la importancia de dar una buena primera impresión. En diferentes etapas, los empresarios deben vender sus datos, productos o servicios a clientes e inversionistas potenciales. Aquí es donde muchos de nosotros no lo hacemos bien. Cuando se trata de recaudar capital de inversión, nunca sabemos si una conversación puede llevarnos a obtener los fondos o capital que deseamos. Por esta razón, los empresarios deben aprender a elaborar una narrativa efectiva que comunique el valor de la empresa, sin importar el entorno.

Venga a esta sesión escuche, aprenda y aplique los consejos, trucos y herramientas para su empresa y al hacerlo, manteniendo un mensaje simple, enfocado y directo.
