Last week I gave a quick presentation at Emily Carr University of Art + Design on how (and when) to pitch your Startup, giving many of these students their first look at the process of pitching investors in the Angel and Venture community on their next killer idea. We also conducted a lengthy workshop where we went through their concepts, and I was inspired. I was also really invigorated by the quality of questions from the students and their instructors, and hope I was able to deliver a (mostly) positive and affirming aspect on reality.
Also, some funny stories from Silicon Valley bubble 1.0
I’ve uploaded the slide deck here. Of course, delivery is always better when given by the deck’s creator. For the students, I promised to post some of my favourite startup pitch deck breakdowns: here, here, here, and here.
