Virtual Event: Fundraising in the COVID-19 Era

Raising capital for a startup is never easy, but COVID-19 has introduced new challenges. Founders have found themselves doing pitch meetings virtually, and sometimes to a disengaged or multi-tasking audience. In this webinar hosted by Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Nor Peterson, co-founder of Halo Incubator in New York City, will offer tips on how founders can raise venture capital remotely including covering the following topics:

  • How to tell your story to keep investors on-call engaged
  • Coordinating and pacing with group presentations
  • Posture, speech techniques and making yourself more presentable on video
  • Tips on how to better use platforms like Zoom for pitch presentations
