Over the last 7 years, I heard plenty of startup pitches. Sometimes it’s exciting, but most of the times the presentations are hard to follow and somehow rather boring.
Sure, since most Europeans are not native English speakers the number one goal of an English speaking startup pitch is to make sure people understand the business model and everything. But if you compare European pitches with US ones, you will realize very quickly that we as Europeans also still have to learn a lot when it comes to the entertainment factor of a good startup pitch.
As an example, check out the pitch video below, which shows the LA-based startup founder Willie G. delivering one of the most entertaining pitches I’ve ever seen! His company is named Party on Demand and he pitched it a few days ago at the Startupfest in Montreal.
During the event, there were many pitches, but Willie G. stole the show. Everybody remembered his pitch and the name of his company. Don’t worry, you don’t have to pitch like Willie G. in order to succeed as a startup. But it might help to take some notes, learn, and at least try to deliver a more exciting pitch in the future.
