What makes a good fundraising pitch?

I have been involved with hundreds of pitches as a Founder raising myself, an investor being pitched to, watching others pitch and listening to people practice. I have raised millions but I have also had a lot of outright rejections and a few people have even laughed at me.

First up, your chances of getting funded in any pitch are low. It’s a numbers game. You need to kiss a lot of frogs. You need a thick skin and never take it personally. It’s business after all.
