You can go and find probably dozens of accomplished attorneys across the US who can help you legally with your startup. How many have actually put their money where their mouth is and started a company, put their own money in and sacrificed time with family to build something they believed in?
How many startup lawyers for their own startups have sat in on scrum meetings with developers, pitched potential investors and canvassed marketing and sales leads? That list of dozens of attorneys who can help you is now down to a handful of lawyers which includes Andrew S. Bosin. Andrew has done all of these things and more for his own startup company which has given him a wealth of experience to help his clients which is priceless.
One of the pearls of wisdom from his own startup experiences that Andrew imparts to his startup clients is how to think about, approach, deal with and pitch potential investors.
The biggest thing that Andrew tells his clients about investors is to leave their ego at the door. No matter how cool the thing is that you invented and even if everyone says that it is slick you still need an investor to say yes. Moreover, chances are you will be sitting in investor pitch meetings asking for money and the investor will throw right in your face the fact that you have no sales and earnings.
You need to be confident, not arrogant. You need to be concise and explain in less than five minutes what the marketplace of competitors looks like and why you have built a better product. You need to be able to show a demo of your product also in a few minutes hitting the highlights not showing all of the features you have built.
Surprisingly, investors want to see a product that actually works and that is both easy to understand and use. Showing them all of the cool features you have built is a waste of time if they don’t get the main idea, purpose and function of what you have built.
You don’t have as much time as you think with an investor in a meeting or on a call. You might need to pivot or switch gears quickly to re-focus them.
All of the founders need to be on the same page in the meeting. Don’t go rogue or off script unless the investor asks questions you don’t know the answer to and you need to improvise.
