Too many startup founders don’t directly answer potential investors’ and customers’ questions during initial pitch meetings. As a result, they lose credibility, momentum, and the opportunity to raise new funding or earn more revenue. In this article, we share a simple acronym—BLUF—you can use to remind yourself to give direct answers to questions after you’ve pitched your company. BLUF, short for Bottom Line Up Front, will help you remember to not make this common mistake.
During a pitch, you’ll typically have one to two minutes to capture investors’ attention. If your startup has traction, you can use a Flashback Pitch Deck to wow investors and set your startup apart at the very beginning of your pitch. A Flashback Pitch gives investors a preview of your problem statement, solution, market opportunity, traction, and current fundraise. In this article, you’ll learn how to create a Flashback Pitch Deck and use it to great effect.
When presenting their competition to investors, entrepreneurs typically make two mistakes: they don’t have a complete knowledge of who their competitors are and they present their competitors using a Magic Quadrant. In this article, we delve into why you shouldn’t differentiate your company from its competition with a Magic Quadrant. We also take a look at why you should use a Power Grid to show how your startup is different from its competitors. Finally, we explain how to format your Power Grid to maximize its impact.
