Pitch your business

Investors prefer putting their money into businesses with a low-risk profile. The more risk, the higher the investors’ expectations of a financial return. Investors are experts at measuring risk and have a sixth sense for the factors that influence the growth of their capital.

In this module, we will teach you to assess your business’s risk profile from an investor’s perspective and show you how to use a risk management framework to develop and continuously review your risk profile. You will also learn how to make a strong pitch deck that investors can’t miss.
