In the world of startups getting a business off the ground is not easy.  There is so much work that goes into developing the plans, product, testing, etc. etc., yet in 60 seconds or less, that dream can come to an end.

 

Why, because their investor pitch didn’t go so well.  This may have been the result of the entrepreneur themselves…or in many cases, their pitch deck didn’t communicate and the brilliance of their idea got lost in the sea of pages, numbers, and rambling that caused the potential investor to say to themselves, next!

 

At the Café, Jasmine Foroutan, CEO of Pitch Genius joins me to offer up some advice on what a great and effective pitch deck should include.

My guest today is no stranger to those struggles.  In fact, it’s those struggles that have led him to a successful business and as important, to a passion of helping others.

Today at the Café I’m excited to have Dave Daley, Monster Motivator to discuss the lessons learned on his journey as a serial entrepreneur and the road that led him to his passion and motivation for the work he does today.
