You’ve crafted your pitch, you talk about your startup idea and founder story.

You’ve put together your pitch deck.

You’re getting ready to pitch to a big investor, one that could give you a runway for the next 12-18 months.

You think you nailed it.

But...the investor doesn’t invest?

Sound familiar?

Why not? You did everything right. Or did you?

A common mistake we see is Founders focus on the wrong things in the pitch - areas that are not priorities for investors. And they don't effectively craft a story.

Pitching is about storytelling, it's about communicating your startup's value proposition and founder story is essential to being able to close investment.

There's a science and an art to it.

In this session, our Co-Founder and General Partner Craig Bristol Dixon runs through tips, tricks and the recipe to crafting a pitch. Plus insider information on how to level-up your pitching.

Craig knows a thing or two about this, having pitched and closed investment from Wavemaker when he was a founder. He’s also worked with 70+ startups and 100+ founders on storytelling and pitching.

What we will cover
• Key points to include in your pitch
• What investors are looking for in a pitch
• How to develop your storytelling
• Tips for pitching virtually

This event is for Founders planning to actively pitch to investors.
