How to deliver a pitch investors can’t turn down

November 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In today’s world, many entrepreneurs come up with great and inspiring products however, only a few of these products get to see the light of the day.

This is because there is a huge gap between having a great business idea and fully implementing it. This gap can be filled by raising the proper funds. And to get the funds, you also need to perfect your pitch.

If you are running a business already, I am sure you have tried pitching your business a number of times and probably failed. In fact, founders like Ken Njoroge, CEO Cellullant have shared a number of times their ‘perfect-pitch’ stories in interviews. Ken, once mentioned that among the hurdles the company had to jump was meeting over 60 different investors over a two year period that took up 400 pitches across the world.

With this in mind, it is clear that the learning curve to getting a perfect pitch can be steep, and sometimes have a fair share of disappointing and yet inspiring and funny stories.

All in all, you need to be able to convince people about your idea – whether a business idea or something completely different.  Your pitch is the main thing that could either get your business off the ground or sink it. It all matters!
