Speaking

invaluable pitching advice

How To Demo Your Startup hey, a post that does what it says on the tin; very sound advice on pitching, well, frankly, anything – not just a startup.

Think of your audience, and help them through the pitch – you’re going to throw a huge amount of information at them in a very short space of time, so help them out! Point 3 – “Leave them wanting more” for example. You can’t say everything that’s you’d like, so don’t try. Leave stuff out. If you’re smart, leave out stuff that your audience will want to ask about – and that you have great (short) answers on.
