  • Dreamers // Doers Event Recap: Making It Happen Soiree with Kelly Hoey – Dreamers // Doers
    important What s the problem and how do you solve it question duo But the best pitches and Kelly has seen tons of pitches are for the startups that have researched the audiences they are in front of There s a difference between pitches for say Y combinator and actually sitting across from Gene Sullivan or Kathy Utecht It s knowing that audience and prepping for that context In addition to solving the great problems of the world why do you want to solve it with them You re amazing Q How can you actually prep for a specific meeting A Answer the question Who is this individual that will be sitting in front of me Check out the websites or LinkedIn profiles of the people you want to pitch Joanne Wilson for example is transparent on how to reach her and what to give her in advance of the pitch Kelly said this was essentially a low hanging fruit kind of approach you wouldn t believe how many people don t pay attention to that or research it in the first place to know this vital information You re amazing Q What are some common pitch mistakes A Rehearsing your pitch so much that you feel you HAVE to stick to it is a mistake You need to be able to pitch through tech snafus and distractions like babies crying or phones ringing If you are the founder of your startup you need to know EVERYTHING Kelly said that female founders get universally crucified for not knowing their numbers and projections Even if you have someone doing this on the daily for you you gotta know it too Anyone who is a non technical founder needs to speak the language Your company s technology is the underlying business Kelly likened it to being the CEO of Ford and not knowing how cars are made You re amazing Q What are the differences between VC and Angel Investors A It s simple angel investors are using their own money so you need to treat it as if you re spending your own money VCs are raising money through limited partners e g pension plans endowments but it s not their own money which is also why they take huge risks because they have huge funds through which to spread the risk They have a specific lifetime on the fund and have to return results to investors in that time period So you need to understand the differing underlying motivations and ask yourself Does this align with what I need You re amazing Q What s a good way to pitch your story to the media A Well according to Kelly a bad way is to confuse the fact you exist with being a story This is the formula she laid out 1 Is this news 2 Tell me why this is a story what s the angle why are you the expert 3 Why is this new news It could

  • 5 Things to Do When Your Friends Aren’t Supporting Your Busines – Dreamers // Doers
    come up said Amy Vernon digital media and content consultant Amy Vernon LLC Just because someone hasn t supported your business in the way you had hoped doesn t necessarily mean he or she is not your friend Next time try to make your asks small clear and actionable like please post this Tweet I have pre written for you or please forward this short email to your friends who are lawyers rather than saying promote me on social media or I m looking for a lawyer You re amazing Picture Courtesy of Dreamers Doers Lloyd Johnston You re amazing If they say no or just don t do it this can also become a great starting point for the conversation about why not Do they feel your message isn t right for their audience Or maybe they are swamped in their own work or personal life and you had no idea The key is to make this conversation about discussing sincere feedback without judgement or friend guilt and asking the right questions to understand what your friend feels comfortable contributing and what feels like too much or not right You re amazing 3 Make New Business Friends Is that BFF you were roommates with in college totally convinced that since you work for yourself you must be taking naps and hanging out in coffee shops Maybe it s time for some new friends When we started Monarq almost all our friends still had traditional jobs so we went to two startup and tech events every weeknight for months The inspiring people we met at those events are the reason we have been able to go from a blank slate to a live app and a community in such a short time A year later we are happy to call many of these amazing startup founders and investors our friends Irene Ryabaya Diana Murakhovskaya co founders of Monarq You re amazing Picture Courtesy of Dreamers Doers Lloyd Johnston You re amazing The reality is not all friends will be able to support you in every aspect of your life but that s ok Having friends who are also startup founders means having people behind you who understand where you re coming from what you re trying to achieve and just how hard it is to do what you are doing Even the most well meaning friend will never be able to understand the pressures anxieties and victories small and large of owning your own business business if they ve never actually done it You re amazing 4 Ask What Can I Do For YOU Sometimes you need to turn the tables and put yourself in your friends shoes Are they stressed out too Are they overwhelmed and need your help Before asking for support or feeling disappointed when a friend isn t quick to respond try asking them what you can do to help them first Successful people always ask What can I do for you With old friends and
