VIP Services for Custom Support
"Perfect Pitch" Coaching & Development
If you are getting ready to pitch for an upcoming conference or business competition and just need a quick tune-up, a 2-hour "Perfect Pitch" coaching session can get you there fast.
If your pitch needs a lot of work or it needs to stand up to the scrutiny you will face when pitching to investors, then you would benefit from the "Perfect Pitch" Development, which includes the 2-hour coaching session but adds custom development of your presentation materials and a second pitch coaching session for polish.
Chief Virtual Officer
While my "Perfect Pitch" coaching is designed to identify holes in your business plan, it is not sufficient to address those holes. If you need intensive help and coaching in business development, project planning, proposal writing or other areas, the Chief Virtual Officer program gets you my support over a fixed period of time to help you achieve your goals.

Among the many other tasks you have, you need to develop and be able to deliver a compelling investor pitch in order to raise the funding you need.
Whether you're about to start your first roadshow or you've been doing them for years, it takes time, effort and often an outside perspective to make it great. Time and effort that you need to spend on other aspects of your business. Reliable outside perspectives that can be difficult to find.
Investor pitches are my core competency: I can help you translate your current story into a compelling pitch quickly and with respect for your technology. My background in technology (PhD, Materials Science & Engineering, Stanford; BS, Physics, MIT) enables me to communicate your technology and its advantages while my business background (executive management in various companies) and coaching experience (over 500 entrepreneurs coached) enables me to place them in the context of your value proposition.
The Plano & Simple Approach
Initial Pitch Coaching
In one two-hour session, we will take your pitch from its current length and flow to a ten-minute version that tells your story in a way that appeals to appropriate investors and makes them eager to learn more.
Sessions are held either in person or online via interactive webinar, depending on your schedule and location.
From this session, you will have a new outline for your pitch based on the 10 Questions and a set of suggested slides with comments. You will also receive suggestions for your script and advice on your delivery style.
Full Pitch Coaching
The two-hour Initial Pitch Coaching session gives you a great starting point for your compelling pitch, but you are still left with hours of work to do.
For Full Pitch Coaching, I will create the slide theme and master that will serve as the basis for all your company PowerPoint presentations, generate proposed slides including words and graphics, and provide extensive script suggestions.
We will then have a follow-up two-hour Pitch Coaching session, online or in person, to give you a final review of your investor pitch in readiness for your roadshow or other investor pitch opportunities.
Fee: $1,500 (includes Initial Pitch Coaching session)
