Episodes can be found on iTunes and new listeners are encouraged to subscribe and review with great incentives from the Pitch Deck.
Consider the Pitch Deck your backstage pass inside the startup funding game as McCulley gets to the heart of what you need to know to secure the capital you need for your next project. The 30-minute podcast airs every weekday and brings listeners into the Startup Funding Game and has been designed to help you ultimately get funded. He interviews successful founders and experienced investors in Charleston and other startup regions to help you learn how to plan, engage and deliver your pitch to perfection. For more tips and tools on creating your pitch, you can also head over to the Pitch Deck website and get their signature 7 Step Checklist to Prepare You for Your Next Investment Meeting completely free.
Dedicated to teaching startups everything they need to know about investing, the Pitch Deck offers several points of view from the investors writing the checks to the entrepreneurs who actually raised the capital they needed to make their dreams a reality. Not only do you get great advice from the investors, but you can hear insider tips and stories from entrepreneurs, advisors and venture capitalists. The information shared is relevant and will enhance your knowledge as you prepare your own pitch. Hearing from each side of the pitching table gives an inside look to the process behind what can literally be the difference between an idea that’s dead in the water and one that gets funded and can move forward.
