Perfect Your Pitch: How To Impress Investors At The Internet 2.0 Conference

img

With 20+ investors in attendance at our upcoming internet conferences in Dubai and Las Vegas, it’s high time that you brush up your pitching skills if you are hoping to bowl them over with your ideas!

The Internet 2.0 Conference has limited start-up presentation slots for a few promising start-ups that seek to establish their footprint on the global tech map. As hundreds of delegates are expected to attend the event, you will have to walk the extra mile to ensure that you leave an impression. However, start-up pitches can be nerve-wracking, especially on an international stage. Not to worry; in this blog, we will highlight some tips that will help you to nail your pitch at our upcoming events:

Know your audience

Don’t go under-prepared! Check Twitter and LinkedIn to know who will be attending the Internet 2.0 Conference. Once you get an idea of the type of investors flying down to the event, you can tweak your pitch accordingly to ensure that they look up and pay attention. Make your pitch relevant for them.

Grab attention from the beginning

Don’t take too much time to build up anticipation. Instead, start with a problem that people face on a regular basis and how your product can be a god-sent solution. This is the easiest way to make people stop whatever they are doing and look at you.

At conferences, many entrepreneurs are under the impression that people will pay attention to them since they will speak only for a limited span of time. But that’s always not the case. If your ideas don’t resonate with them within your first two-three sentences, they may get distracted.

Tell YOUR story

People would like to know what’s different about your start-up and whether you are actually passionate about staying for the long haul. For this, they need to know why you do what you do as well as the team that’s working its magic behind the scenes. Don’t end your presentation without talking about what drives you and your crew!

Get your numbers right

Confident that your predictive analytics tools will help businesses enhance their customer engagement strategies? Don’t just state it as a fact; show them figures and hard stats instead. Investors too, will want to know details revolving around cash flow, break-even points and much, much more. Therefore, make sure that you have the numbers by your side.

Exhibit your product

Give your audience a quick demo of how your product works. A visual demonstration will create more impact rather than just talking about the features of your product. Even an MVP is better than an on-screen presentation of your product. This shows that you are serious about it and want to talk business as soon as possible!

Other than these vital points, remember to leave your audience with your contact details. This way, they will be able to get in touch with you at a later date if they require your services. We hope that you are able to make the most out of your time at our upcoming tech events in Dubai and Las Vegas!
