Learn how to pitch investors – but this time, learn from someone who pitches every day. As his job.
On Thursday,Oren Klaff and a panel of investors are going to help you learn what really works when raising capital. Imagine this for a moment – you’re sitting across from an investor, the one person who can help you secure the investment capital your company needs. But instead of listening to you, he’s looking out the window and checking his phone for messages. This is called a “beta trap” and you’re about to step right in it. Your next move means the difference between getting an investment or going home empty handed. Learn how to deal with beta traps and many other problems that you may face on your path to raising capital.
