Entrepreneurialism: how to do a fundraising pitch, Part I

jml sent me this link to a TED talk. I like everything about the TED talks. But that's another post.

This TED talk is about how to do a pitch to a venture capital if you are an entrepreneur. So much of it is relevant to Christian pioneers, whether church planters or para-church planters, such as AFES evangelists starting new ministries. I like the fact that the dude who is giving the talk is like a 1960s vaccuum cleaner salesman.

In a pitch to possible investors, you need to convey:

1. Integrity
2. Passion
3. Experience
4. Knowledge
5. Skills
6. Leadership
7. Commitment
8. Vision
9. Realism
10. Coachability
