LOS ANGELES, CA (Venture Hollywood) 2018/11/18 – New location as we move to SPACES co-working space in downtown Culver City near Sony Pictures. Each month I present an opportunity to participate in Q&A with investor and VC friends speaking on a celebrity panel. After a short break, six selected startup founders present short pitches in front front of our savvy venture audience. Founders who want to pitch apply beforehand.

Free! Limited space! RSVP now for December 5th

Celebrity Venture Experts Panel (Bring Your VC Questions)

 

Each expert on our panel is asked how he or she got started in the business, investment strategy and thoughts on the current market. Then it’s open Q&A with the audience. Bring your best startups question! If there’s a venture expert you would like to see on a future panel, let me know. Free event made possible in part by our sponsors: SPACES and Oracle.

To participate as audience, RSVP. To be a presenter, see Secret to Becoming a Pitchfest Presenter. Everyone is welcome. Female and minority entrepreneurs are particularly encouraged to join us.

Statistically speaking, it takes 50+ pitches before a CEO succeeds in raising funds for his or her startup. While investors come to our events, some incognito, the point of pitching is not to immediately land an investor. Nobody writes a check on the first meeting. It’s to hone pitches and start building brand awareness.  If you’re a presenter, the good news is only 49 pitches to go! For the rest of us, there’s plenty to be learned by watching others pitch.

A good pitch deck is like being well dressed. Crucial for making a good first impression, but charm and integrity matter more. When investors give us money, what they are saying foremost is they believe in our character, that we have earned their trust.
