Joe Caruso, angel investor and coach for CEOs, Presentation
Jean Hammond, angel investor and start-up coach, Presentation
The business plan 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 business plan presentations and executive summaries to raise capital and grow their businesses. Our panel consists of three successful investors (angels & venture capitalists). They will provide advice on how to put a business plan presentation together, tell you what works and doesn’t work in today’s investment climate, network with you, and answer your questions.
