You have probably read or heard investors say they invest in the individual as much as the concept itself (sometimes more), whether it’s the person heading up a startup or the CEO of a larger organization. When investors are deciding where to put their money, they are looking for the people who they believe will deliver. You have about 10 seconds to show them that you are that person and a few minutes after that to show them that you have a viable, scalable idea.
Your communication style will be one of the greatest determining factors in whether or not funding is secured. If you don’t convey confidence, passion and intelligence, there will likely be no deal. Savvy investors notice nearly every aspect of nonverbal communication, looking for congruity between your words, your body language and your vocal cues. Addressing the questions that you know are in the minds of investors throughout your presentation shows forethought, organization and the all-important awareness of what’s in it for them.
If you want to feel confident that your investor pitch is as strong as it can be, we’re here to help.
Lisa Elia, the founder of Expert Media Training, has provided investor pitch coaching to clients who have raised millions of dollars from venture capitalists, angel investors, pitch competitions and other sources.
When analyzing your pitch deck and working with you, she pays close attention to detail and anticipates the questions and objections investors will pose, and prepares you to address them powerfully. This, combined with her expertise as a presentation trainer, media trainer and public speaker, will help you present yourself as the strong, confident leader that investors want to back.
In your investor pitch coaching program, Lisa Elia will:
• review your pitch deck to ensure all key elements are covered clearly and optimally
• coach you on all aspects of your delivery to ensure you convey the confidence, authority and warmth that investors seek in an entrepreneur
• drill you with questions as investors will do, and then help you prepare solid responses to each question
• provide you with techniques to focus and calm your energy any time you need to do so
Clients leave the training feeling prepared, confident and ready to impress investors.
