10 things to know before you pitch a VC for money

David S. Rose is a split-screen legend to the world’s entrepreneurs. He’s been both a mentor to hundreds of startup hopefuls and, sometimes — to the talented and fortunate — a funder. His rapid-fire seminars on pitching to venture capitalists are celebrated and sought-after. He’s helped invest hundreds of millions of dollars in startups through New York Angels, Inc. (companies like Peter Diamandis’ ZERO-G), meanwhile raising tens of millions for his own companies.
Fusing these interests under Rose Tech Ventures, Rose’s mission is to give future movers-and-shakers support and encouragement. He calls his new SparkSpace Incubators a “greenhouse to nurture the seedlings of future entrepreneurial superstars,” while Egret Capital Partners goes beyond New York’s “Silicon Alley” to fund more established companies across North America. If you want to supercharge your leadership skills — even if you’ve made your fortune — try lessons through his Liminal Group.
