How to Pitch to Investors — MIT Forum January 25, 2011

MIT long wayIf you’re in the Washington, DC area this month, you might want to stop by the January meeting of The MIT Enterprise Forum of Washington and Baltimore. My colleague Khris Baxter and I will be will be offering advice on how to get investors to say “yes.”

The session will be very interactive and based on our work with entrepreneurs as well as with experienced pros who have been on both sides of the investor pitch. We’ll begin with a few remarks designed to get the discussion flowing. Then we’ll move on to exercises that allow the participants to try out their pitches, revise them based on feedback, and try again. This will be an interactive, participatory event.

You can get more details and sign up here. I hope to see at the Forum.
