The Dos and Dont's of Pitching to VCs
Monday, October 14th from 7 pm - 8:30 pm
Karlin Ventures

Fundraising is a grueling process for entrepreneurs. We will elaborate on this process from the VC’s perspective, but also share insights into what investors are looking for, how to prepare for pitch meetings, and, more importantly, what not to do when meeting them. We’ll get into specific tips on what to include (and exclude) from your pitch decks all the way to the subtle nuances to be aware of when fundraising.

Student Takeaways:

  • Understand how the fundraising process works
  • Key mistakes to avoid when meeting with VCs
  • What VCs look for in meetings
  • How investment decisions are made
