WIN's Pitch Prep series assists incubator companies raise outside capital. Each year, we organize a multi-session course which includes the motivations and preferences of different investor types, how to develop a successful pitch, opportunities to present to & be critiqued by a friendly panel of investors, and coaching on term sheets and valuation.
Sessions are held both in person and online and draw upon WIN's network of experienced investors outside of Western New York. In 2014 and 2015, the program was held in the weeks prior to the 43North finals, as dozens of local companies prepared to pitch for their shot at investment.
Participating companies have since raised more than $3M in outside funding from numerous sources including angels, private equity firms, state and federal programs, institutional, and other investors.
