…[Focus] on telling the story (not history) of why your company is on to something great. Clarify the source of the opportunity, the customer pain and value proposition, what your solution is and how you know customers will buy it, how you intend to grow and defend market share, where you are now in the process, the size and intensity of the market, your cost and revenue expectations, and how much investment capital you need and what for. Why are you and your team the right people in the right place to make this happen? Why are [you] so sure you’ll win? Rezon8Angels Group (Source:
