1. KEEP IT SHORT (1-2 MIN) & SIMPLE

Act more as a teaser, investors don’t wanna have direclty every single detail of your project. If they were to keep in mind only 3 elements which would you like them to remember ?

Mention something very hard to forget about you that separates you from the rest.

2. SHOW RATHER THAN TELL

Most of the time people used to explain their project in some points through their venture video pitch rather than demonstrating it. We recommend you to think differently. Demonstrating what you are saying through examples is the best way to go by!

The quality of your video is essential. It is indeed through this video that investors will have their first contact with you and your business. Your video is your chance to make a first impression.
