Being able to pitch your business well is a critical skill that every entrepreneur should posses. Whether you are communicating your concept to investors, potential partners, or anyone else you need to be able to effectively communicate why your business is worthy of consideration. And that is especially true of that first group of people that I mentioned: investors.
To that end, one of our more active CSUF Entrepreneurship community members and mentors, Virginia Lorimor, is an angel investor and she will be participating at a pitch contest on September 28 called Orange County VC and Angel Investor Conference. This competition is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to get their ideas out to potential investors.
The details of the event are as follows:
Interested in meeting and pitching to early-stage Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists in Orange County? Register for the FundingPost event on Thursday, September 28th, 2017.
FundingPost has hosted exactly 400 sold-out venture events in 22 cities over the past 17 years.
At our next event, the panel of investors will focus on Early-Stage Venture Investing: How to meet investors, pitch them, and what it really takes to get them to write you a check! We will be discussing trends in Early-Stage Investing, hot sectors, sectors that these Angels and VCs look at, things that are most important to them when they are considering an Investment, the best and worst things an entrepreneur can do to get their attention, additional advice for entrepreneurs, and, of course, the best ways to reach these and other Investors. There will be plenty of time for networking with the Investor panelists, both before the panel & after the panel at the Cocktail Party!
Interested in pitching? 15 will be selected for a 60 second fast pitch to the panel of investors. The Investors will vote and the winner will get meetings with the Investors.
