I spent the morning at the Collider practice pitch session kindly hosted by Taylor Wessing, like so many other startup events. They are both doing a great job for the software startup ecosytem in London. Thank you!
I was impressed with the quality of the startups that pitched, partially because I had been led to expect them to be much earlier than they were (they weren’t ideas, they were all post MVP with pilots or paying customers) and partially because they were all good ideas.
However, there were some things they could have done better – all of them didn’t do at least one of the below.
And finally, take a look at this doc we put together about pitching.
And really finally (because I just read this as it popped into my inbox), check out this blog on making your pitch a story-telling exercise by Oren Jacob of Pixar/ToyTalk.
