How to Become a Key Person of Influence:  We’ve all been told about the facts

How to Become a Key Person of Influence:  We’ve all been told about the facts and figures you need for a slide deck, but if all it took for an investor to take a chance on a start-up was the numbers, then a lot more people would be getting funded and you could do it by just sending an email. One of the most overlooked aspects of an investor pitch are the elements that make up a successful presentation and make YOU investible.  This session will uncover the hidden aspects of an investor pitch that can be the difference between getting an actual investment or getting a half-hearted-but-polite, “Thank you, we will get back to you.”

As Florida’s economic recovery continues, small businesses are seeking to expand by hiring new employees, developing fresh product lines and making new capital expenditures. While the future is bright for Florida’s small business owners, many still find obstacles to securing the capital needed to grow their company.
