I believe that an investor pitch presentation is one of the most challenging forms of human communication.
There is a huge chasm between the speaker and the recipient.
The entrepreneur doesn’t understand what the investor wants to hear and the investor, while much more experienced in these conversations, probably can’t figure out what the heck this particular entrepreneur is trying to tell him.
In this episode we shine a light on this problem with successful serial entrepreneur, former corporate venture capitalist and current angel investor Roger London.
Roger explains in detail:
- How to land a meeting with an angel investor
- What that meeting will look like
- What investors want to hear in a pitch presentation
- How to build your slide deck
- Red Flags and Green Lights
- What a successful outcome looks like
If you have ever wanted to make – or do a better job making – investor presentations, you do not want to miss this interview.

Poppir, a tech startup based in the Washington, DC area, is bringing the sharing economy to the commercial real estate industry.
When co-founders Moh Ducis and Derek Nickerson asked me to give a pep talk to their – currently – unpaid team of developers, marketers and biz dev folks as a kick-off to an all-day team building meeting, I wasn’t quite sure what to share.
While I do have experience in startups, it hasn’t been entirely positive. What could I tell these folks that would be entirely honest but which wouldn’t have them running for the exits? The solution I created is heard in this podcast, recorded live in an empty night club in the middle of a Saturday afternoon.
What I shared can be categorized under four Cs:
I’m glad that I recorded the presentation because I believe it was well-received by the people present and may well benefit other founders and team members at current and future startups.
