So you’ve got an app idea, and it’s brilliant.
You think, ok, I’ll just start raising funds now. The idea is so amazing no investor will be able to resist it once you pitch it to them!
There’s a massive problem with this…
Don’t be fooled by the Silicon Valley media circus of Snapchats, Facebooks and Ubers, who have all raised millions of dollars when they were still very young startups.
These stories get a lot of press, but these businesses are tech unicorns – raising startup funding definitely isn’t easy!
We’re currently in a situation where demand for investment is outstripping the supply of angel investors.
With the bar set so high, how do you stand out to investors?
The trick isn’t to cram fancy gimmicks into your pitch. Investors won’t be seduced by flashing lights and a ‘cool idea’ alone.
Then what IS the special sauce?
Well, there IS NO SPECIAL SAUCE.
It’s all about the substance of your pitch. Most startups don’t know what they need to include in their pitch, and they lack the sales know-how to sell their business convincingly.
So how do you raise startup funding?
