After Concept, Pitch for investment
I am not a social guy and neither can call myself an entrepreneur, but still learning. I have a working and proven concept the problem is that I have a hard time pitching my idea to investors. Where do I find investors interested in digital startups and where do I find those investors to pitch to? What would be a good starting point?
1. A good way to improve your pitch is to informally pitch to your friends and family and anyone who asks you "what do you do?" If you do that over and over again, you refine your pitch because you're constantly getting feeback on what interests people and because you're refining how you envision your "product." It's just like playing the piano - you play the same song over and over again, until you understand the nuances of the piece and are able to play without looking at the page.
2. As far as investors, I would really just start with searching "digital startup investors" or "tech startup investors" and go from there. There are a lot of individuals, VCs and other organizations interested in investing in tech companies, so a few searches should point you in the right direction. From there, you can look at investors' portfolio's, interviews and other info to see which ones you might gel with.
