“Everybody is selling something all the time” [Anon.]
I don’t know who said that (probably me!) but it’s true; everything is a sales pitch:
– asking a girl/guy out on a date
– a marriage proposal
– a loan application
– a job application
– a promotion request
– a sales visit
– a venture capital ‘pitch’
Guy Kawasaki outlines a great approach to ‘pitching’ for anything in his masterpiece for budding entrepreneurs, The Art of the Start.
And, consummate VC, Chris Rose, fills in some of the blanks in this great 14 minute video … watch it, bookmark it, you’ll need it (one day) ….
Thank you for this really really great information. I just went and watched this video, and it really give us a lot of the information we will all eventually need one day. I believe everyone will at some point in their business career,need to seek out venture capital , and this sort of information can really prepare us for that time.
