A founder and VC will often spend less than a full day together before they decide on their partnership. In cases like this, every small interaction takes on huge importance. 

Here are strategies to ensure that your brief interactions with investors make a good impression.

  • Get organized before you reach out.
  • Respond quickly.
    • Keep investors in the loop to avoid making them hesitant.
  • Address all questions and issues with urgency.
    • Don’t let doubt linger.
  • Overdeliver.
    • Prepare to exceed expectations at every step.
