Good question right? Are you getting playacted, ignored – politely declined? You want to know WHY did you get a no or a pass .. or at least I do , I want to figure out what I missed and how to make my presentation better .
Keep reading below and see if you can help me out.
Here’s the VC criteria :
So I’m following up from this weeks round of contacts. I had an email chain with an investment group and the response I had was “outside our focus as of now” …
So here’s my question; based on the focus of the VC and our focus I think it’s a match worth looking at. So why did I get this response?
Thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately this is a bit outside our focus as of now. Good Plans though
Please keep us posted
I followed up up with a question about the deck and if there was anyone in their network that would be a better fit. response :
I think deck was on track – although I’d add historical financials not just current year and projected. Not sure on other investors. BULK is early for most of the folks I am thinking of – but will advise if anything comes to mind.
(if you’d like to see the deck email me firstname.lastname@example.org)
So back to the question “do investors really look at your deck?”
My goal here is to tweak the presentation so all information is front and center, I get it people are busy, they are constantly sent decks, have a short attention span, for the information that gets in front of them. I followed up with a 3rd question, no response yet but I’ll keep you posted.
If you would like to take a look at the pitch deck we’ve built – send me an email and I can get you copy.
