You’ve been living and breathing your idea 24/7. You can talk about it for hours, but when you score that investor meeting, what information is a must to cover? In this class, we'll discuss how to succinctly and comprehensively address the questions on the investors' minds, from market sizing to financials. We'll also discuss the components of an elevator pitch and executive summary, often precursors to getting those investor meetings. I expect the class to be highly interactive, and feel free to bring drafts of your pitches or your elevator pitch. I'll also invite entrepreneurs who have raised capital to share their successful pitches.

You know you have the style, now make sure you include the substance!

Note: All proceeds will be donated to Raise Cache, a benefit fashion show on November 17th to celebrate NY tech and raise $100,000 for HackNY. Help celebrate NYC as the epicenter of Tech, fashion, art, culture and music while fostering the next generation of innovators.
