iCentre’s Think Big Biz Plan 2 day Workshop

I didn’t get short listed in this year’s think big biz plan competition, but I attended the Workshop anyway, It’s always good to keep an open mind and check to see if there are any new knowledge or to refresh them in my mind.

The second day was facilitated by Kris Childress on the topic of presenting and pitching to investors. Among the topics were:

  • Introduction to Investors e.g.Venture Capitalists (VC’s)
  • Structure of a presentation
  • Guidelines of Pitching to investors
  • Guidelines of Presenting to investors based on David S. Rose
