Pitching for Angel Investment

Pitching for Angel Investment can be a daunting prospect. We aim to make the process as enjoyable as possible and we have a few top tips to help you get the most out of the opportunity.

Pitching Top Tips

  • Keep to time! – It is better to be under-time than over.

  • Don’t get too technical – give enough information so that the investors understand what it is and what it does, but don’t go into too much depth about how it works at this stage.

  • Remember the pitch is to ‘spark’ the investors’ interest - if they want to learn even more about your business, they will arrange a meeting to do so.

  • Be honest – investors are judging you as much as your business, they want to imagine an amicable ongoing relationship with you.

  • Don’t put too much text on your slides, it’s difficult to read and listen at the same time.
