GFA’s Business Journey: Pitching To Win

Introduction Pitching ideas to potential or interested investors (funders) could make or break a business at a very crucial period in an enterprise’s lifecycle. Inability to do so effectively and successfully, can even prevent a business getting off the ground. A lot of information exists in the public space, and yet it seems some entrepreneurs and business people simply decide not to devote the energy, time, or effort to seek these resources out. It may also be a good idea to engage professionals who can prepare effective pitches, thus creating a higher probability of deepening interest in your investor pitch and subsequently – your business. This weekend, we...

Launch Your Innovative Venture (The Structure Of A Pitch)

Principle and objective of the pitch What is a pitch ?  The first oral presentation of your project is called a pitch. In few minutes, you must have submitted your project and have convinced your audience, in order they want to know more about it. It’s often mentioned, also as the "elevator pitch", when you have just few minutes. It's as if you took the elevator with an investor and you succeed to create its interest during the trip. In this case, you must be able to convince in less than 3 minutes. When can I tell my pitch ?  For a pitch, you can be in different situations, as you...

Or find an entirely different application for an existing product. As an example, De Beers once produced only industrial diamonds, but found a market as well in engagement rings. 2. Pick a specialized technology within an existing movement Let the heavy lifting on major technology evolutions be done by big players, such as Apple or Google. Think smartphone cameras, as opposed to a new smartphone design. Within all large markets, there are many opportunities...

18 Pitching Essentials: How To Pitch An Idea To Investors (And Early Customers)

Stage 1: Understand what makes a compelling pitch “You have 90 seconds, if you’re lucky. If you can’t make your point persuasively in that time, you’ve lost the chance for impact. Facts and figures are important, but it’s not the only criteria, you must present in a manner that generates expertise and confidence.” A good pitch balances business and emotional needs. Whether you’re pitching to a company, an investor, a customer, or a potential partner, you have to hit them on both emotional and business levels. Without this, your pitch is almost certain to fall flat. A good pitch is succinct. In most cases you only have a few seconds...
