Part 7: How to Make VCs Flock to Your Startup Idea
This is part seven of our Startup Quick Start series for helping entrepreneurs launch their next startup.
You’re almost at the finish line. I can already taste the champagne. 🍾
But before we put our feet up, we gotta build our VC Cheddar Trail. Or as the boring business textbooks call it: “an investor pipeline” 😴
Regardless of how you pronounce it, you’re gonna need it. So to save you 100 chrome tabs, we’ve assembled a toolkit to build your investor CRM and pitch deck for optimal angel cheque conversion rates.
Your accountant’s also gonna love us b/c we got some perks that’ll save you a butt load of cash. Here’s the playbook:
✔️Clarify your startup narrative: Double down your key message and who's pitching
✔️Create your Pitch Deck: Use this 90% off link to build a secure pitch deck on DocSend.
✔️Craft some outreach: email us, your investor friends and mentors your deck for feedback
✔️Connect your outreach to a CRM: Store the info someplace you can reference in the future
✔️Cut Out Things that Distract: With every meeting, delete and iterate your deck to perfection
That’s all there is to it.
Just follow those 5 checkpoints and you’ll be off to pre-paid SF flights to meet angel investors in no time. Or even better, you can meet them right on Kernal and set up a video chat after they give an up-vote to your idea. 😎
• Reach out to any investors who show interest in your Kernal idea
• Request intros/referrals from your network to other investors
Relax, take a breath and soak this moment in.
