The goal of your business pitch is to make an impact on the investors. Read on to discover 6 power words you can use to convince your investors and earn their trust.
What is the business pitch?
The business pitch is a short presentation of the business plan given by the founder to potential investors with the goal of persuading them to invest.
How long should a business pitch last?
Your business pitch should last between 10 to 20 minutes. Any presentation longer than 20 minutes is likely to go into unnecessary details which don’t support the goal. If your business pitch has convinced the investors to invest in your business, there will be plenty of time to delve into the operational and financial details of your business. The sole objective of the business pitch is to explain your business in a few simple but impactful words so that anyone can understand.
