From a mere idea in your head to a proposal on a paper your startup takes a giant leap for the big world when you are ready to pitch your idea to a team of Venture Capital investors. All the days that lead up to the presentation are a jumble of emotions: you are excited and yet apprehensive of their reaction to all that you’ve built from ground up — Am I dreaming too big Is my idea realistic at all Is it too early to be approaching an investor To start with prepare an elevator speech and a pitch deck — both of which should be concise creative short and interesting — a true reflection of your spirit to shine. Guy Kawasaki recommends building one that has “ten slides last no more than twenty minutes and contains no font smaller than thirty points.” Furthermore remember that practice is key to perfection so rehearse your presentation several times before the final day to avoid rambling and over- complicating your message.
