Meeting Presentations: 

Arthur Fox, Chairman of Royalty Capital Management, Presentation

Hambleton (Ham) Lord, Managing Director, Launchpad Venture Group, Presentation

Darshana Zaveri,  partner of Catalyst Health Ventures, Presentation

The investor presentation is crucial to any startup. It is your primary vehicle for conveying an organized thought process to investors about your business, team, and pathway to success. Entrepreneurs need well-conceived investor presentations and executive summaries to raise capital and grow their businesses. Our panel consists of three successful investors (venture capitalists and angels). They will provide advice on how to put an investor presentation together, tell you what works and doesn’t work in today’s investment climate, network with you, and answer your questions.
