Now, the not-so-obvious: How do you land that coveted investment?

The answer to that goes far beyond simply applying to the event. You need that compelling pitch the investor cannot turn down.

In order to prevent potential investors from saying “pch” to your presentation, you must dot the ‘i’ and cross the ‘t’ that make up the “it” factor of your pitch – what separates you from the pack.

Here are some helpful tips for crafting that million-dollar pitch:

Forget About Siri Or Alexa: Try #TheAskCharlieShow Instead

Got questions? You’ll find that Siri will field your fine dining dilemmas, upcoming weather quandaries, traffic jam plights, and standard assortment of day-to-day lifestyle related queries with aplomb.

Enter #TheAskCharlieShow.
