In this tough economic climate raising capital is going to be even harder. It was already hard (for most people), and venture capitalists or holding the purse strings tighter than ever. With that in mind, it’s the perfect time to improve your pitch. A bad pitch will kill you each and every time; and it’s even more important at this stage to keep the doors from closing in your face.
Startup Camp Montreal – organized by the good folks at Embrase – is an opportunity to get on stage, in a relatively friendly atmosphere amongst friends and peers, and do your pitch for raising capital. There are judges as well, venture capitalists, angel investors and others, that will critique your presentation, ask tough questions and generally … help you out.
They want more startups to apply – and I would encourage you to do so. All you have to do is list your company, and get in touch with them. It’s a good environment to test out your pitch, get honest feedback and improve.
