The growth of a startup can depend upon its ability to raise funds for scaling up at the right time. Hence it is important to learn the effectiveness of pitching to investors.

Nexus, in collaboration with Power Deck, held a Master Class on “Preparing your Elevator Pitch” at the American Center on May 3rd. Startups learned the dos and don’ts of preparing the pitch deck and why so many companies fail to pitch effectively.
