Alex discusses the ways in which investors tend to think, what makes a great pitch and how he made the bold transition to become a full time startup investor after 10 years at M&C Saatchi in London.
Some takeaways were:
- As a founder you must never get bored of telling your story
- The most attractive setup for a tech investor is a CTO plus a Business Development professional
- Investors love founders who clearly demonstrate strategic thinking as far as 3-5 years ahead, regardless of whether the predictions come true or not.
