In today’s extremely competitive world of raising money for startup companies, it is absolutely critical to have an effective and well-conceived pitch deck that compliments the project’s vision and strategy.
Only 1 of every 200 business plans submitted to venture capitalists (VCs) gets funded, so it is vital to present a well-thought-out presentation that includes all of the elements that VCs (or any type of potential investor) will be looking for in deciding whether to invest in your company or not.
Whether the student is interested in starting their own company someday, wants to work for a startup, or just wants to learn more about venture capital, Silicon Valley, and startups in general, this will be a great opportunity to discover how startup companies have successfully raised money.
