One of the most important things you need to prepare for in your business, especially in a start-up, is to pitch to investors in under 2 minutes. Here´s how.
In many investment circles around the world, whether angel or venture, you very often find yourself in a position to give a 2 minute pitch (often called "Elevator pitch") to see if someone is interested in your business.
Pitches are also often presented to a panel of investors who have heard hundreds or even thousands of pitches.
If you expect great results, you need to be well scripted and rehearsed for the performance.
Without a script inscribed in your brain, most people will usually...
- Run over on time
- Get cut off
- Not cover everything you wanted to talk about
- Or worse, completely lose your way
Do not condense your 10 minute presentation into 2 minutes. It will not work!
