Event Details

Pitching an early-stage science- and technology-based startup to potential funders can be intimidating. Learning how to tailor your presentation and understanding what motivates funders to say yes, or at least not give you an outright no, are important aspects of preparing for your initial pitch.

This talk, led by Partner Matt Cohen and Principal Manny Stockman at the venture fund Osage University Partners (OUP), will be structured around the firm’s many years of experience in hearing pitches and reviewing pitch decks to provide insight on creating and presenting an initial startup pitch to funders. The talk will delve into the venture capitalist mentality and will discuss the following areas:

  • Pitching guidelines and suggestions
  • Who pitches?
  • Essential elements of the deck and how much of each element to present
  • Exemplary slides for tech and life science sectors
  • What next?

This session is part of the "2020 Intellectual Property Speaker Series" co-sponsored by the Technology Licensing Office and MIT Libraries. Lunch will be provided to attendees of the Intellectual Property Speaker Series events. Please register for the seminar and for lunch. Please note that lunch will be served from 11:30am-12:30pm.

FREE SWAG!

We will also be giving away some branded MIT Libraries and Technology Licensing Office swag to participants who attend any 6 sessions from this series, so please check out our other sessions! http://mit_tlo.eventbrite.com
