Are you tired of pitch events where *maybe* 1 out of the 10 companies get a follow up investment meeting and the rest of you get a hot steaming cup of jack squat? You spend all sorts of time on it and it doesn’t help you build your business at all.
What if you could pitch a potential client—one that doesn’t have some limited amount of capital they’re trying to preserve—but one that needs help and could use a variety of services, including yours? Yes! Revenues! Why bother with getting investors if you could get cash money in the door?!
NextNY is continuing its series where big companies telegraph their needs to the startup community and you get a chance to win their business. Could it be an ad deal? A distribution agreement? A six figure revenue windfall? It’s up to you to sell them on what you’ve got that suits their needs.
The last NextNY event produced not only a deal with the New York Daily News but a pivot and a new business model for Olapic. (www.olapic.com).
