Somewhere in the repertoire of the startup cycle, co-founders will contemplate the idea of raising money, figure out how much and then develop their deck. With their business plan in hand, founders hit the streets and may enter pitch competitions, go straight to the desks of investors, hit up more friends and family, visit some banks or a combination of all the above. Regardless of the golden path to funding, there are significant lessons learned with each pitch.
TiE AZ, an organization with global reach providing meaningful education, mentorship and networking for entrepreneurs, is holding a startup peer-to-peer event aimed at helping founders prepare their pitch and raise money successfully. Bill Miller, founder of AutoXray (sold) and an Ernest and Young Entrepreneur of the Year winner, will moderate a panel of startups, including founders from Delivery-IT, SiO2 Nanotech, CrowdMics and eMoneyPool who will be sharing their stories and lessons learned about raising capital and developing the best pitch deck. Click on each startup to learn more about their success.
