This presentation provides an overview of the different types of investors interested in early-stage companies, their preferred investment strategies, and what they are looking for in an investment deal. We also discuss some of the key features of a successful investor pitch, what to include and what to avoid. Finally, we discuss the typical process that the entrepreneur needs to understand to navigate their way through to a successful early-stage investment round.
