How to present to Investors

How to present to Investors

Many hackers want to get funding from angels or VC with their ideas – but chances are it is pretty hard to know what to present about. Paul Graham, an investor, has written a good piece of advice on how to present in front of investors. Advices range from what to present – how to speak well – specific elements that can give investors a good information and impressions:

  • Explain what you’re doing.
  • Get rapidly to demo.
  • Better a narrow description than a vague one.
  • Don’t talk and drive.
  • Don’t talk about secondary matters at length.
  • Don’t get too deeply into business models.
  • Talk slowly and clearly at the audience.
  • Have one person talk.
  • Seem confident.
  • Don’t try to seem more than you are.
  • Don’t put too many words on slides.
  • Specific numbers are good.
  • Tell stories about users.
  • Make a soundbite stick in their heads.

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
