Raising Money For Startup? How to Pitch Investors

Raising Money For Startup

Raising money for startup doesn’t have to be complicated.¬†Crafting a killer pitch to investors is an important factor for raising capital. Getting adequate investor funding is crucial for business growth and survival¬†of many¬†startups.

Your ability to communicate clearly what your startup can do is essential for raising capital and funding:

  • Do your research before you craft your pitch: know your investors, know your market and know your numbers.
  • Tell a story. People understand and remember stories better than dry facts and statistics.
  • Keep it short. According to Guy Kawasaki, a powerpoint presentation for your pitch should have 10 slides, last no more than 20 minutes, and contain no font smaller than 30 points.
