10 Tips for Preparing Your Pitch
  1. Have your business plan, executive summary, and a PowerPoint presentation prepared before approaching investors.
  2. Your presentation should include no more than 12 slides and should take 20 minutes.
  3. Practice it with friends and associates until you have it down cold. Incorporate valid feedback.

  6. Provide a reasonable estimate of the market size and the portion of this your business is likely to capture.
  7. Describe the competition.
  8. Explain how the business will make money.
  9. Include a five-year revenue forecast.
  10. Relax! Remember investors are people like you and me.
