I just returned from my first presentation with an Angel Group here in Dallas. It was pretty brutal as their format and time limits are very restrictive.
The business idea I am pitching has a solid model with tremendous potential. The problem is I come from an engineering technology world where we speak a different language than the money men. My biggest fear is that this business will be cast out not because of the idea but instead because I did not do it justice in the presentation.
My pitch was geared more for the purpose of obtaining the mentoring then the startup capital. I do need the money but first and foremost I need to learn the language.
How do I address this? I will not get feedback until Monday and should it come back negative I am left with little resources to pitch this again.
