LP2X Survival Tips:
By bernie dixon
If you were on your way raising capital before the crisis hit and then fell into an abyss looking for ways to connect with investors, it may be time to step out again. Many angel investment networks like The Atlanta Technology Angels and early stage venture capital firms like TFX Capital for Veteran-run companies have gone virtual. Honing your investor presentation for a virtual pitch is fairly easy especially for naturally enthusiastic entrepreneurs who are visually confident.
After many years of receiving presentations and requests for funding I’ve become adept at reading entrepreneurs. I recently talked with Lisa Calhoun at Valor Ventures, a seed stage Venture Capital firm who targets women and other underrepresented groups of founders for a first-round investment. Valor is conducting a virtual “Pitchfest” series for software companies: Register Here. Lisa is fiercely focused on deploying capital now and wants to see high potential companies. Here’s a few pointers on how to prepare.
Ok. You got this. You’re ready to present in front of your laptop or tablet.
Be confident. Think big and, of course, play to win.
