Half-day Pitching MasterClass: How To Raise Venture Capital
Are you ready to raise funds for your startup/business? Do you know what it takes to impress the investors to invest into your business?
90% of investment pitches fail!!
Much of the succeses we have in life, both personal and professional, will depend on how well we “pitch” ourselves, or more simply how well we “sell” ourselves. A pitch should tell the story of you and/or your business. A bad pitch can cost you more than just a second meeting. Raising capital from investors can be very challenging and time-consuming. Therefore, it is always crucial that we convey in a manner that shows our business as a compelling and interesting story.
At the end of the workshop, learners should be able to:
Identify what the investors are looking for;
Build a Pitch Deck as an exciting and compelling story to showcase to investors;
Practise using body language and voice variation to deliver your story; and
Create an effective “call-to-action” to entice the investors.
NOTE: This exclusive half-day workshop is for startups/businesses which are ready to pitch to investors. The objective of the workshop is to groom and prepare startups/businesses to pitch effectively to investors.
This limited-run, highly experiential MasterClass is suitable for any startup and entrepreneur who is planning to pitch for funding (be it government grant or angel investments). The workshop is intentionally designed to be delivered in small group (max: 15 pax) to foster maximum interaction, allowing learners to work on their individual pitches and get constructive feedback from an entrepreneur/investor himself as well as from the rest of the learners, therefore it has limited seats.
To avoid disappointment, please register early.
To help startups to define their business models, pitch decks and pitching, learners of this workshop will get 2 complimentary hour of individualised coaching (Valued at $300) from the trainer. The coaching is valid for 3 months from end of workshop.
