It was my first pitch ever!
What did I learn about 5-minute pitching?
- 5 minutes pitch means, 5 slides only
- Tell a story that gets straight to the point of your pitch
- Tell the investors why you need them to give you the seed funding
- Show them how successful your pitch idea is
- Show them how the money is going to be used
The good part is we won.
MY Clean Beach won our first grant from Yayasan Hasanah ( Khazanah) an initiative from Biji-Biji.
I knew what I was going to present but I was not sure if the investors would buy my idea.
Above all, I brought my confidence, a feeling of a little gutsy, keeping a smile on my face, and a lot of luck.
I had one thing in my mind – if I win it’s a bonus, if I lose it’s an experience.
Either way, there is always something to be gained!
To me, that’s confidence and a winning team attitude. 🙂
