Event Details

This month's Startups Uncensored event will be a fireside chat with BeachMint founders Josh Berman and Diego Berdakin on  How To Pitch To Investors, hosted by Jason Nazar.   

NOTE: Before the evening's Startups Uncensored event, we will be co-hosting a very special LA Startups Demo Day at the Fairmont Hotel from 1:00 - 5:00 where 20 LA startups will be showcasing their new products/companies to a large group of investors and the LA startup community.  You can claim a ticket for the LA Startups Demo Day on this event page, or visit the official event page for more details and to apply to present.  


Join over 500 LA entrepreneurs, investors and techies to learn the very best ways to pitch investors.  


Josh and Diego started Beachmint in 2010 and since then have raised over (wait for it....) $70 Million Dollars.  They're also both active angel investors in the LA startup scene having invested in some of the most popular LA tech companies.    


In this fireside chat we'll cover:  

1.) How to court investors


2.) The biggest pitfalls and turnoffs in pitching


3.) How to pitch an angel deal vs a venture capital firm


4.) The elements of the perfect pitch deck


5.) Closing the investment


Prior to BeachMint, Josh was the President of Slingshot Labs, a division of News Corporation, is a web incubator dedicated to building new Internet companies as well as a co-founder and the chief operating officer of MySpace.comDiego, who specializes in building business from the ground up, co-founded a Los Angeles based internet incubator, MD Capital, where he helped incubate successful start ups – notably serving as president of iEscrow.com and Chairman of Bzzing, inc. 

Both the LA Startups Demo Day and Startups Uncensored 26 will be hosted at the Fairmont Miramar hotel in Santa Monica.  The Fairmont is graciously joining as a co-sponsor to make the event possible.  They're also currently modernizing the entire hotel to make it a crown jewel of Santa Monica.  Please join us is expressing your support for the Fairmont by visiting www.FriendsoftheMiramar.com
