Have you ever felt the jitters before presenting your big idea to a potential investor? Of course, you have. Here are 4 tips to ace your next investor pitch:

Get to the Point

Busier a person, smaller is his attention span. Try to keep your pitch crisp but captivating. Don’t beat around the bush and give an overview of your proposition quickly before losing the investor’s interest.

Establish the Need

The only question going through an investor’s mind while you are presenting the pitch is "What problem are you trying to solve?" It’s your job to convince them that there is a need and your solution can address it.

Capture the Essentials

While the presentation is important, angels care more about the business plan. Can you, in less than five minutes, explain the project, the return on investment and the growth strategy? You got them.

Competitive Advantage

Do you enjoy the first mover advantage or is there a competition present? You need to show the investors that what you are pitching is better than what your competitors are offering?

Here's the "news that entrepreneurs can use". Know what's trending in the Indian business world in 60 seconds.
