One Perfect Pitch by Marie Perruchet offers step-by-step guidance to entrepreneurs who are seeking funding for their ventures, or those who need to sell themselves or their products or services. By focusing on their one-of-a-kind stories and knowing the ins and outs of pitching etiquette, entrepreneurs can make their ideas unforgettable and make their businesses seem like exciting and worthwhile investments. In the hypercompetitive world of entrepreneurship, particularly in Silicon Valley, having multiple pitches prepared and practiced is essential for survival.

Pitching to investors is an essential part of entrepreneurship. The perfect pitch needs the following:

  • Storytelling.Every startup founder has encountered challenges along the way. The stories of overcoming these challenges are inspirational. They get investors’ attention and help them relate on a personal level.
  • Multiple iterations.The pitch that works for one investor will not be the right pitch for another investor. Smart entrepreneurs will have several versions of their pitches that cater to different types of investors. They will also be able to condense their ideas into one-minute elevator speeches.
  • Practice, practice, practice.The best presentations are those that do not feel scripted. They are delivered in a natural and relaxed manner. The only way to ensure this is to practice presentations over and over again.
  • An amazing presentation.Whether a presentation is a one-minute elevator speech or a longer, more formal presentation, it must wow the audience. It should have three acts, including a hook, a product demonstration, and an ask. The presenter must be authentic, confident, well spoken, and relatable.
