3 Big Mistakes that Kill Funding for Entrepreneurs

Do you want to hear a story?

When I first got into pitch training I thought pitching investors would be very competitive and that entrepreneurs would really have to be on their game in order to win investor dollars from other entrepreneurs. I thought there would be more entrepreneurs than there were investor dollars, therefore increasing the competition. BOY WAS I WRONG! As it turns out, it is just the opposite. There's more investor money sitting on the sidelines waiting for entrepreneurs than you could possibly imagine! However, they're not just giving it away. Investors look at businesses daily looking for a great investment. The overwhelming statement that I hear from investors is, "entrepreneurs just aren't ready".

Here are the top 3 mistakes entrepreneurs make that KILLS their chances with an investor.

  1. No team.
  2. Inaccurate financial projections.
  3. Not Prepared.

The list goes on, but these are the top three. In this interactive session, we will take you behind the curtain and show you how to look at your business from an investors point of view. We will align your business with the metrics investors use when determining to invest in a business.

In this session you will learn how to:

  1. Create an all-star team.
  2. Learn how to build sound financial projections.
  3. Prepare for an investor pitch.

AND much, much, more!

This will be a working session to please bring your laptops, iPads, cell phones, or any device that gives you online access as well as something to take notes. LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED!
