Writing and Pitching a Business Plan

Developing a pitch presentation is another important element of starting and sustaining a business. In order to secure funding, outside investors including venture capitalists, angels, or nonprofits, may request a pitch. A pitch is a condensed sales presentation that outlines:

  • your company and team--what do you do, what do you sell, who is your customer
  • the problem your product or service is addressing with said customers
  • the competitive landscape of your industry
  • your financials including profit/loss projections
  • how you would use the funds
