Thousands of investors are interested in early stage companies. Most of the time, they make investment decisions based on an emotional attraction to the company and then they look for data to confirm their instincts. But when founders make mistakes, they give investors a rational excuse to stop funding them. This session will give entrepreneur’s the tools on what mistakes not to make when meeting with potential investors.

Over 30 years, we have seen some of these mistakes made over and over again. The Don't Do This™ presentation is aimed at helping entrepreneurs avoid some of the most common mistakes --- so they can be more successful fundraisers.
