The investor presentation is your primary vehicle for conveying an organized thought process to investors about your business, team, and pathway to success.  Entrepreneurs need well-conceived investor presentations and executive summaries to get the attention of investors, and build interest in their business.  Our panel consists of three successful investors (venture capitalists & angels) who have looked at tens of thousands of early stage companies.  They will provide advice on how to put an investor presentation together, tell you what works and doesn’t work in today’s investment climate, network with you, and answer your questions.
