The Perfect Investor Pitch, Part 1

At Angel Investment Network, we’ve watched a lot of pitches in our time –
some good and some bad. Here is some of the advice we give our members on how to perfect their investor pitch. 

Key Points & Tips

  • The best way of thinking about writing a Pitching Presentation is as an “Elevator Pitch”. As the name suggests an elevator pitch should be possible to deliver in the time it takes to ride an elevator, focusing on this makes the pitcher more precise. Make every point count.
  • Start with “a hook” – a statement or question that grabs the investors’ attention and makes them want to hear more.
  • Explain exactly what your service or product does. We often hear investors saying they had no idea what the company actually does, as it gets lost in qualifying statements and fancy figures. It is hugely unlikely investors will invest in a concept they don’t understand.
  • The investors won’t expect you to cram everything into your 8-minute pitch. It is often the people with the most concise pitches have the most interest afterwards.
  • Tell a Story. Your pitch must not be a checklist of impersonal facts and figures. When you tell the story of your business, you bring it to life in an engaging, memorable way. Stories make sense and persuade in a way that a list of facts and figures can’t.

Timing

  • Time is limited, so make sure you can summarise your business within the allotted period.
  • Think hard about what your key message is and cut out all unnecessary detail.
  • Don’t get bogged down with the technical details – just tell them what it does. i.e. Walls Sausages, they don’t need to know how the pig was killed just how the sausage sizzles.
  • Don’t repeat yourself.
  • Don’t go off on a tangent, as every sentence counts.
  • Think about how much time you will allocate to each of the sections we mention below – play to your strengths.

Presentation Style

  • Speak clearly.
  • Use the Power of the Pause.  When a speaker pauses while delivering a presentation, it conveys confidence and control.
  • Conversely, someone who speaks at a hundred words a minute conveys nervousness, pause and give your audience a chance to digest your key points.
  • Be enthusiastic – Investors expect energy and dedication from entrepreneurs.
  • Don’t use acronyms or technical jargon.  Everyone should be able to understand it.
  • If you’re not an experienced public speaker, don’t be afraid to read from cards but make it a deliberate confident decision to do so, indecision will count against you.
  • Don’t simply read what is on your PowerPoint presentation (this should only contain visuals and bullet points).
  • Gestures and body language (e.g. nodding and smiling) are very important.
  • Look your best!

Practice, Practice, Practice!

  • Can you do it within the time limit?
  • Did everyone understand it?
  • Ask family, friends and colleagues for feedback.
  • Did it convey the desired message?
  • The more you practice it, the more relaxed you’ll be when you’re in front of the investors.
  • Our training session will be a good ‘Dress Rehearsal’ so please be fully prepared.

What should I include?

Below are the key points that Investors feel are most valuable to your presentation. The following slides will serve as a template and provide worked examples in each instance.

  • Pain or Problem?
  • Premise?
  • People?
  • Proof?
  • Purpose?

For more info about what to include in your investor pitch, come back next week for The Perfect Investor Pitch, Part 2.

A BBC survey has suggested Indonesia is the best place for entrepreneurs to start a business

Indonesia is the best place for entrepreneurs to start a business, a BBC survey has suggested.

The US, Canada, India and Australia are seen as among the next best countries at supporting new businesses.

At the other extreme, Colombia, Egypt, Turkey, Italy and Russia are among the least entrepreneur-friendly.

The results come from a survey of more than 24,000 people across 24 countries.

Index derived from the mean scores (on a scale from 1 to 4) of four questions:

  • valuation of creativity/innovation in own country
  • difficulty to start own business in country
  • valuation of people who start own business
  • ease of putting ideas into practice

5 great ways to find funding for your company

In the past, it was more difficult to find angel investors because most deals were regional. However, now that it is so much cheaper and easier to communicate nationally and internationally, angels are starting to look at investment opportunities further afield.  It’s also much easier for angels to find investment opportunities outside their own area thanks to the Internet, incubators, demo days, and blogs that cover the scene. The most important question for entrepreneurs looking for funding is “how and where can I find these investors?”.

Angel Associations and Networks

Most countries have a national association for angel investment groups (e.g. The US has the Angel Capital Association (https://www.angelcapitalassociation.org/) and the UK has the British Business Angels Association. The World Business Association lists some of them and you’ll be able to find more by searching the web.  Most of these organisations will be able to give you a list of angel networks, and maybe even someone to contact about your funding request.

LinkedIn

Through Linkedin you can even do targeted searches for angel investors (by name, keyword, region etc).  For example, Reid Hoffman (unsurprisingly since he’s the founder), Esther Dyson and Peter Thiel to name a few, are all members of Linkedin. However, as most angels and angel groups receive masses of messages daily, they probably don’t reply to everyone. Also, a lot of angels and angel groups don’t like receiving unsolicited emails through social media platforms and this tactic could be seen as the social media equivalent of “cold calling”. I’d suggest joining one of the many LinkedIn groups that focus on angel investing.  You can post an outline your investment opportunity and people can get in touch with you for more details if they like the look of it.

Twitter

It’s no great surprise that angel investors also use Twitter.  For example, Ron Conway, Chris Sacca and Jeff Clavier are all big Tweeters. Twitter offers a great channel to share information about your venture and to generate buzz. The aim is to get yourself noticed and build a brand that investors believe in and are interested in.

Websites

There are a few websites (like our very own!) that allow investors the opportunity to look at startups that need capital. These sites are probably the most targeted way to find funding, as your executive summary is promoted to hundreds of business angels at once.  You also don’t have to worry about sending unsolicited messages, as all the investor members on these networks are actively looking for investment opportunities.  Most of these sites have a national focus, but Angel Investment Network has 25,000 investors and 30 networks worldwide, so you can find angels from around the world.  At the top right corner of www.angelinvestmentnetwork.net, you’ll find a drop-down list with all our sites so you can find the one closest to you.

Incubators

Incubators and startup accelerators are becoming increasingly popular as a source of early-stage funding. Some examples include Techstars, 500 Startups and Y Combinator – the latter has funded over 300 startups since 2005. A further benefit is that they’ll also provide valuable advice, support and resources to drive your business forward.

I’d love to hear from anyone who has managed to raise capital.  How did you do it?

8 great ways to drive traffic to your website for free

1. Search Engine Optimization

SEO is the process that helps you in improving your search engine ranking to drive increased traffic to your site. SEO is a good way to increase conversions that you will get from your website with the aim of making your business into a market leader. Search Engine Optimization has become a hugely popular term in the digital marketing world, and for good reason, an SEO expert like Damon Burton, President said.

You need to add good content to your website because content is king in SEO.  To learn SEO fast & efficiently, navigate to this site. Having chosen the keywords you wish to be found on in search engines, scatter them throughout the content of your pages. This increases the relevancy of your site and thus the ranking in the various search engines like Yahoo, Google and MSN.  According to Indexsy, keywords are most powerful when they are placed in titles, headers, urls, and image names.

2. Submit an Online Press Release:

Issuing press releases online is one of the best ways that exists to spread the word about your business for absolutely free.  Take some time and put together an interesting piece and forward it to the many online press release companies. A good story quite often gets picked up by bigger news agencies and publications, so your business can get really good coverage – you could be amazed at the resultsMake sure you give this article a read and understand the kind the SEO services that you need.

3. Article Writing

Website owners and email publishers are often looking for original content. By writing industry specific articles, not only do you get the reputation of an expert, but you also get great exposure. Always include a link back to your web site in the article. Articles written for specific websites that your target audience views can be highly effective.

4. Start a Blog

Starting a blog is a great way of engaging your existing audience as well as attracting new customers. Using free software from WordPress (www.WordPress.com), Blogger (www.Blogger.com) or other companies, you can develop and publish a simple blog in just a few hours. When you publish a great post, you’ll not only get your name out there and get a nice SEO benefit (Web 20 Ranker LLC is white label seo service is the best SEO service you can get), you’ll also drive interest to your business to learn more about where all your awesome ideas came from.When it comes to guest posts in SEO you can see that it is explained here as to how you can make it better.

5. Social Media

Social media is a great way of engaging your existing audience as well as attracting new customers. Rather than merely selling to your customers, social media (Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, etc) allows you to communicate with them and opens the door for them to communicate with you. The more relationships with people interested in your niche, the more sales you’ll inevitably make. Your website should be linked to your social networking sites and vice-versa.

6. Participate in Forums

Online forums are used and viewed by hundreds of people, so keep an eye out for forum posts based around your industry. Participate in these forums through making relevant posts, giving advice and answering questions. Wherever possible add your web address to the end of your post. The more you participate and share your experience, the more people gain trust and go to you for questions.

7. Launch an Affiliate Programme

Offer rewards (financial or other) to existing users or companies in a similar space who refer new members to your site.

8. Cross Promotion:

Find non-competing companies in your industry and suggest doing reciprocal mailouts or adding links on your websites to drive traffic both ways.  However, make sure it’s a service or product your clients will be genuinely interested in or they’ll just think it’s spam.  Also, be careful not to send too many mailouts or you’ll start to irritate your members. For links, avoid link farms and link exchanges with non-relevant sites.
