Jeff Kofman The Accidental CEO

I like to talk about a lot of different things on this podcast including technology, venture capital, how businesses and industries arise to solve problems and address needs.

I like to talk about first-time business owners and Boomerpreneurs – people who start a business in their retirement years. Most of all, I like speaking with creative and interesting people.

In today’s program I am bringing you all of that in the person of Jeff Kofman, who is CEO and co-founder and an incredible startup called Trint.

After 33 years as a broadcast journalist for CBC, BBC, CBS and ABC, Jeff Kofman became “The Accidental CEO” of this London-based tech startup.

In this episode of Radio Free Enterprise, Jeff talks about how he came to be an entrepreneur at this stage in his life and the similarities between being a war correspondent and the CEO of a fast-growing company.

How To Talk To Angels with Roger London

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.
