What can an entrepreneur doo get the money he needs for his project when it is needed the most? Chris Burch of Burch Creative Capital says to try to find the things in your company that others can’t do and then play on those strengths. Besides showing your investors you have a strong positive inflow of cash they like to see how you set yourself apart from others (entrepreneur.com).
There is no need to rush thru your presentation but be prepared to answer as many questions as you can and don’t be stumped if they throw you a curveball. Don’t try to fake it, but simply admit you don’t know and promise to get back with them. Do everything as if they were about to say yes, and avoid any words that will cause pitfalls in your presentation. Be organized and ready to be grilled, but remain confident, so the Venture capitalist or Angel investor understand you know your business inside and out on a practical level. When necessary, depend upon rely on your team to keep things flowing. If you need someone to help you with a projector or slide use your team.
