This post is part of the Entrepreneurial Education Series, which brings together successful, influential entrepreneurs and investors to teach entrepreneurs everything they need to know about early-stage investment through events, articles, videos, and more. If you are interested in learning more about raising a round, save the date for “Early Stage Investment 101” on June 17.
Genevieve Thiers — the brains behind Sittercity and ContactKarma — outlined the five documents every entrepreneur needs to prepare for an investor meeting (and to keep themselves on track) at the launch of the 1871/Hyde Park Angels Entrepreneurial Education Series, “Are You Ready to Raise.” She also generously shared her own templates with us. And here they are!
These are proven templates from a successful founder for building the ultimate investor meeting toolkit:
- Executive Summary
- Pitch Deck (Make sure to review in tandem with our step-by-step pitch deck guide)
- Competitive Overview
- 3 Year Financial Projections
- Cap Table and Model
