Review: Beginning your presentation with…

Beginning your presentation with a question is an effective way of grabbing the attention of your audience. You had me listening intently at the outset. You have done a superior job of explaining the function and utility of your app. Screenshots and graphics illustrating exactly how your venture works provides a clear picture for investors. You have clearly identified your market gap with solution and provided several examples of similar products while demonstrating how HightlightThis is unique. The diverse backgrounds and expertise of your management team gives your venture greater credibility. It might be effective to add the names of team members along with the graphics. Information about what you require from investors and their forecasted return is clear and compelling. As a potential investor, I would like more information about how you will identify teachers within your market, in particular those educators using the flipped classroom model? Another minor comment is about the yellow slide with the title a web highlighting app for teachers. There was a slight lag before any text appeared on the screen. I’m not sure if it was a one-time event but it did impact the flow of the presentation. Overall, this was a fantastic pitch and I would be willing to invest in this venture.
