Pitching for Investment
Welcome to the Converge Challenge Podcast. Last time we got into pitch preparation, but this time it’s time to deliver. We’re going to find out what it takes to present a great investor pitch.
Our four entrepreneurs have made it to the big Converge final now – the last hurdle is to get in front of a team of judges and sell their idea. Not over 60 seconds this time either, but 10 minutes, and that’s followed by plenty of time for questions.
So, we’re going to delve deeper into how to prepare, how to calm the nerves, what they learned from the judges feedback and how it felt to win the competition.
By the end of this episode, you’ll be all set to deliver you own, for the Converge Challenge or otherwise. And hopefully you’ll feel a lot more calm about it.
Always remember, if you need a bit of help with your idea, feel free to start by knocking on the Converge Challenge’s door. Or, maybe the website, at least to begin with. Contact us and find out how you can speak to the team about your business, or how to apply for the next challenge.
Don’t worry, though, we’ve more for you here too. On the next episode we’ll be delving right into what the companies did with the cash prize and the support after the challenge. What did they learn once the real work began?
