GFA’s Business Journey: Pitching To Win

Think smartphone cameras, as opposed to a new smartphone design. Within all large markets, there are many opportunities...

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.
