I just moved to New York and I am starting an online B2B business. I am looking for Venture Capital events to network, pitch to investors, or share your business with like-minded people. Also, any recommendations for good examples of Pitch Decks resource will be greatly welcomed. Thank you.
Hey Alvaro - I believe if you score above a 9.0 on the TABS Score (www.tabsscore.com) they will circulate you to relevant investors that ask them for strong deals. We require all our companies that pitch to have their TABS Score anyways, so may be something useful for you to get. We have a discount for our fund if you're interested just let me know and I can share the code with you.
If you're talking about NYC and not just NY, there are literally dozens of Meetups for startups every month that often include pitch competitions, networking, and fundraising elements. No joke, dozens. But you don't have a business, you have an idea, so investors aren't going to care until you develop your plan, validate your product-market fit, and remove the risk in your strategy to take your product to market. Investors don't invest in ideas, they invest in plans. Your pitch deck does not even need a rough draft until you go through all your research and do your marketing strategy validation. You should also have a plan for your business on how it would be built if you never get any outside funds, since most never will. If you can show how the business would survive without outside money, and then what money would do to accelerate your plan, you have a better shot at persuading others to consider investing.
