Seed Capital Openings for Angel Investors & Wacky Pitches

9 Replies

What are some of the best opening techniques you have heard of when speaking to potential Angel Investors about seed capital? Any great stories out there for wacky pitches? What worked; What didn't?

@Dana Walker , I was listening to a nerdist podcast and Seth Rogen mentioned they had nearly decided to go into a pitch dressed in hot dog costumes! They didn't wear the costumes, (Thank god!), but they also failed to garner investor interest. Perhaps if they had?

That's about the wackiest pitch never to be I have heard of. If I remember correctly, there were all sorts of strange investor pitches on that investment show "Dragon's Den", however the investors needed to have an mvp and full business plan prepared. Not quite Seed Capital, but still.

We usually send a gift beforehand, though I would be lying if I said the gift hasn't backfired spectacularly a time or two in the past! Certainly didn't raise the seed capital from those clients!

I very much enjoy dragons den! When I was a young man in college studying business, that show was the great reprieve at the end of the day showing us exactly how to, and how not to, approach such venerable and wealthy investors.
