VP Business Development Rollins Incubator, Inc.
I have secured a 5 minute block for you to pitch your idea to Mr. Rollins, the CEO. I have seen many of these presentations, so here are some tips to help you out.
Keep your presentation short and sweet. You only have a few minutes to impress him, so get to your idea quickly. Here is the format I see that works best. State your
company name and motto, with a tagline and a date. Then tell us your objective. In other words, how much money do you need and why you are here And, what is your
business proposition and your target market Have you considered your competition And what are the risks Lastly, be sure to include financial statements with basic
revenues and costs, and don���t forget to include how much money you are asking for! You have a lot of work to do, and good luck!
