Ben Franklin Investment Forum Workshop

June 22, 2009

You know the old saying, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”   That’s particularly the case when you make funding presentations to investors, be they angels or VCs.  If you do a less-than-stellar job at one venue, the word will spread quickly, to taint you in the eyes of other groups.  If equity funding is part of your company’s financing strategy and you haven’t yet made any pitches, either to an angel group meeting or a VC fair, now’s the time to learn how to make the pitch the right way.  If you’ve been pitching and haven’t received any expressions of interest, you need to learn what to do differently.

Ben Franklin Venture Investment Forum is presenting a workshop entitled, “Pitching to Investors” on July 28, 2009 from 9:00 to 11:30 AM at Penn State Harrisburg’s Educational Activities Building.  Jill Edwards, Executive Director of BFVIF, will lead the training.  You’ll learn what investors are looking for and how to make a compelling case for your company.

The cost for this workshop is $50 per person and is limited to 30 participants.  For a registration form or more information, please contact Jill Edwards at Ben Franklin Venture Investment Forum, at (717) 948-6625 or

This workshop will fill up fast, so register today!
