You’re an entrepreneur looking for investors so that you can achieve your vision. But what’s in it for them? During this talk you’ll be introduced to a tool for building the foundation of your pitch, which starts with understanding how investors look at your company. Spoiler alert: innovative, cutting-edge technology is only a fraction of the story…

Looking after your own interests is the beginning of being able to look after your investors. Join us and learn how to take a step back from what you’re doing and see it through an investor’s eyes.
