THE ART OF PITCHING TO ATTRACT INVESTMENT AND SUPPORT

THE ART OF PITCHING TO ATTRACT INVESTMENT AND SUPPORT

By Trevor Clarke

Pitching is an art, overlooked by many entrepreneurs as an essential skill for growing the business, winning contracts, gaining big sales orders, and attracting investment or funding for business growth. It is a combination of getting the content, delivery and tone right. And being well prepared for the questions to support what you have said or to fill in the gaps with anything missed or only briefly mentioned. You need to know who you are pitching to, research them and understand what they may be looking for, what will appeal to them and why you believe there is a match between what you produce or provide and what may be of benefit to them. You may be seeking investment but it could be knowledge, mentoring, partnering, introductions, or the whole package. But always remember that first and foremost, people buy from people more than anything else.
