When you’re raising capital, a great startup pitch can make or break your funding efforts. I’ve heard thousands of pitches over the years, given quite a few of my own, and spoken to hundreds of entrepreneurs about their experience with raising capital. What I’ve noticed is a pattern that emerges again and again: the founders who get funded are the ones who use every rejection to improve their pitch.

Just as the best businesses are the product of many failures along the way, the best pitches are born out of many bad pitches that came before. The entrepreneurs who give these pitches take constructive criticism to heart, constantly reworking their slide deck and tweaking their delivery until they have a truly outstanding pitch that investors respond to.

Even if you think you already have a great pitch, there are some really helpful strategies you can use to inspire investors and customers to take action. Drawing on my own experience and feedback from fellow entrepreneurs, here are proven strategies to deliver a pitch that resonates.
