Best Practices Series-Secrets to the Successful Business Pitch
Tuesday, February 5, 2013 from 6:45 PM to 8:30 PM (PST)
Morgenthaler Ventures will lead a session designed to illustrate what is required to make a successful pitch to venture capitalists.
Rebecca Lynn (MBA/JD 08), Partner at Morgenthaler Ventures, and Layton Han (MBA 96), CEO of Adara Media will give you their perspective on what needs to be in a pitch to get your company funded. There will be a brief presentation on the essential elements of an investor pitch, followed by audience Q&A. We promise you will come away with a different perspective on fund raising, and get a better understanding of how to deal with the process before, during, and after the pitch.
