At the end of the session, he shared his thoughts on how a first pitch could be improved:
1. Present only 6-7 slides
2. List the problem(s) you are trying to solve
3. Explain your solution. How is it different from the others? What value does it bring?
4. Explain why you are the best team to solve this problem. Include details of the team
5. Cover the ‘Why Now?’
6. Specify what you are looking for, from the investor
