If you are going to apply for funding, it is crucial that your pitch is right in the cupboard. It can help decide whether you get your investment or not.
A picth is a short presentation of your company. Therefore, you can also use a pitch to give customers and new employees an insight into your company.
Your pitch must therefore contain:
- What does your company do?
- Who is your target group?
- Which need your company covers
- How the company differentiates itself from the competition
- How your business can scale
Your pitch ensures that you don't lose the thread along the way and that your recipient gets a quick presentation that they can decide on immediately.
