Getting funding for a business is never easy - you’ve got to put the work in, to convince the funder - be that funder a bank or a business angel - that your business is worth it and that they are going to receive a return on their investment. The thing to remember too is that there are lots of other entrepreneurs out there - lots of other startups - all vying for that same pot of cash. It’s essential therefore to make sure that your business has an edge - has that certain something that the others don’t - and the best way of starting to show that edge is with your pitch. Let's face it - investors are used to hearing pitches from startups who all claim to be innovative, disruptive, revolutionary. They’re used to hearing pitches that are cliché-ridden yet in actual fact say very little.
Putting work into perfecting your pitch is therefore critical. After all, if you pitch well and manage to secure investment, just think about the potential impact that could have for you and your startup.
Getting your investor pitch right though needn’t be that daunting a prospect - especially if you get a little helping hand - which is exactly what the good folk over at DTCW Communications can provide. For this month only, they’re running a Special Offer for Startups who are pitching to investors - they’ll create your Investor Pitch for you - and for only 50% of their normal fee. If you’re serious about securing investment for your business, this will be money well spent. After all, for that fee, they’ll do it all - from researching who you are pitching to through to reviewing your business plan and then they’ll create a message strategy that will make investors pay attention and take notice! Interested in finding out more? Take advantage of this Special Offer and get the pitch your startup deserves!
