Here is what your competition is doing to get prepared to get funded fast on the Hall-Of-Famer package:


3 common myths

1) Myth: I can wing it and read my slides

Truth: If you don’t practice, you will stumble

If you read your slides, you will bore your audience

2 ) Myth: If I practice too much I won’t sound authentic

Truth: There is no such thing as overthinking your pitch or too much practice

If you practice enough, you can sound conversational and confident

3 ) Myth: Investors need to understand how my product works

Truth: Investors have to care what problem you solve before they care how
The confused mind always says NO
