In our previous article, we wrote about how to start a startup. But if you have your startup project, sooner or later you will find yourself in a situation where you have to present your project to someone – the investor, potentional buyer, incubator, or the audience on some of the relevant conferences.
That the presentation of the project is extremely important, know all those who have participated in at least one startup event. A self-confidence, body language and expressions used in this brief presentation only contribute to a better impression. You can not afford to be shy on stage. You must tell the judges that are here just because you have the best product, the best solution on the market.
Your Startup Pitch is going to be the first thing that potential investors look at when you ask them for money or if they are looking for another business to add to their portfolio. Therefore, a good pitch is going to be one of your biggest chance to success as a startup. Make your pitch visually beautiful and interesting, to attract the attention of the audience and to create a specific “emotion” or “atmosphere” during the presentation.
Depending on how many minutes you have to pitch, divide the amount of time on the slides and you will know exactly how many seconds you have for that slide. In practice this means that if you have a pitch of 3 minutes, do not use more than six slides because it usually means that you have 30 seconds per story slides.
In the beginning, when you create a presentation, use clues written on paper for each slide individually and try to incorporate sentences that accompany each slide. When you finish, move on with your training.
Let your screen or mirror is the audience! Have you managed to cram everything in three minutes? You did not? Eliminate less important sentences and repeat the procedure until you manage to complete the story within 3 minutes. You managed to finish within 3 minutes? Wohoho, congratulations, but you’re not done yet! Repeat this pitch still countless times, until your gray cells do not completely absorb all of the text. This will help despite jitters on the actual presentation – and if you block, the easier you will come back again to your text. Routine wins uncertainty, and if something goes wrong, try to improvise.
Use your body dynamics, do not stand in one place but move and gesture open positions. With your hands, you can emphasize parts of the slides you’re talking about. Use intonation to emphasize and do not be monotonous when you’re talking. Take the focus of people to the point that you want!
Speak loudly and clearly, and if it’s possible, smile, and show enthusiasm for your project. If you do not have it, why had someone else? Also, humor is the best collector of attention, if you manage to laugh audience means that they listen to you and that you will be remembered, you havewin situation if they ask something, because then you have them 100%. With humor you also show your project as interesting and that you love to work on it.
No pain, no success, so is the pitch. Practice until things snap into place. Below are beautiful and creative Startup Pitch Powerpont Presentations for inspiration and download:
