Venture capitalist Zaw Thet admits it himself -- pitching is no fun! But, it’s a make-or-break necessity for most startups. What does Thet, partner at Signia Venture Partners, look for in a pitch? He wants to see a founding team that can tell a compelling story of why they deserve an investment and why now.  On the flip side, a quick way to no is to come into a pitch full of hubris and shadiness – a lack of transparency is a big turnoff. Thet also talks about his motivation behind the transition from entrepreneur to investor and how he hopes to change the world through both capitalism and philanthropy.
