    Alliance of Angels 10 Minute Pitch Clinic

    K&L Gates

    Raising capital from Angel investors can be a challenge, particularly given just 10 minutes to distill your entire business plan into a compelling presentation. What information is critical? How much detail is enough, or too much? What do angel investors consider when evaluating an investment opportunity?

    Since 1999, the Program Managers at the Alliance of Angels have been coaching early-stage companies and bringing the best deals to angel investor members. Having collectively interviewed hundreds of companies, we have developed a set of best practices regarding the presentations that resonate with the angel investment community. In the 10-Minute Pitch Clinic, we share these best practices with you in an interactive workshop. Instead of learning these lessons the hard way, when you're in front of angels asking for money, consider attending our clinic first to get the inside information you need to know, now.

    This workshop format will be divided into two parts. First, we will give an overview of the Alliance of Angels and discuss the components of a good 10 minute pitch. Afterwards, we will work directly with the participants on your specific start-up messaging. All you need to bring is your vision for your company and your desire to make this workshop truly participative-- no other preparation is necessary. Space is limited to 20 attendees, so reserve your spot today. The price to attend is $95 per person with advanced registration, or $110 at the door.
