Pitching your idea to a group of investors is incredibly nerve-wracking. Always puts you in a
dilemma whether investors like your idea or not. Most of all, you wonder if they’re going to fund
you or not. Even if one has money in the bank, there sure is going to be a point where one simply
has to get additional funding to grow their startup, to start scaling up. To achieve this you need
to understand the perspective of the person sitting on the other side of the table.
An amazing opportunity for you to sit on the other side. Get an experience of the life of an HNI
(High Networth Individual). Put yourselves in the shoes of the investors and learn how to position
your company for successful pitches in the future. (SHARK). You are the investors here, not the
entrepreneurs. Play the role of Angel Investors assessing the startups, and place the millions in
the right hands.
- Participants would play the role of Angel who has $5Mn to invest in one or more of the
startups presenting. They’ll be assessing the investment opportunities and pitching an
investment strategy to the VC judges. The startups presented will be virtual with no
financials, startups have to evaluate the idea.
