The Financing Program

From the seed of an initial idea to a successful IPO, a company must go through many stages and many funding rounds to finance their growth. Whether you want to sell your product or service, create a partnership, or make an acquisition, you must communicate the value of your company effectively to receive that financing. Get ready to talk to angel investors, venture capitalists, high net worth individuals, hedge funds, private equity firms, or strategic investors. Investors make their decisions on the basis of a persuasive pitch. Make the very best case for the value of your company and get investors on-board. Every presentation, whether live or virtual, is the cornerstone of raising capital. Approach your investors with a powerful presentation.

Learn How to Sell Your Business to Investors

An effective presentation has four parts:

  • Story Development — structure a cohesive and compelling narrative
  • Slide Design — create slides to support your story
  • Delivery Skills — use your body language and voice to communicate your story with poise and confidence (Don’t worry: good speakers are not born, they are taught)
  • Q&A — how to handle tough questions when it counts

Jerry Weissman and Power Presentations, Ltd. have experience on both sides of the podium, having helped companies like Netflix and investors such as Goldman Sachs. Our Financing Program is meant for any company, particularly startups, looking to raise capital.

Course Options That Deliver Results

Our Financing Program will give you confidence that your presentation is in top form. It is available in three versions:

Our most complete financing program covers story development, slide design, delivery skills, and how to integrate all three. This Standard program also dedicates one day to learning how to handle your tough questions.

The two-day Accelerated program is customizable and available in two options: a condensed version of all the topics from the three-day program or just story development, slide design, and delivery skills.

The one-day Custom program is available in three options: story and slide focus, delivery focus, or Q&A focus.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Jerry’s methods in Presenting to Win helped us raise our own first venture fund with twice the commitments we needed in half the time. Those same methods then helped many of our portfolio companies not just in their presentations, but had a significant impact in the marketing of their products.

Jerry’s classic is the definitive encapsulation of a true ‘maestro’ playing his ‘A’ game. His techniques were an absolutely critical success factor in Luminous raising $80mm in one of the toughest market environments I’ve ever seen. There isn’t a successful entrepreneur I know who won’t benefit from leveraging his persuasive, maximum-impact presentation principles.
