Robert Fenton (CEO of Talent Expo) “I thought the pitch I was going to deliver at the “cmypitch Live” event was really good. That was until I went on their ‘Get Investor Ready’ workshop which not only made me realise that my pitch had lots of holes in it, but it also taught me exactly what I needed to concentrate on to get it up to a level where I had a good chance of securing funding from the angels rather than bore them to tears! I am very grateful to the team at cmypitch.com for all their help, advice and support. I highly recommend this workshop to any entrepreneurs looking to get funding for their businesses.”

Mike Georgeson (Founder & CEO, Krowdbuy.com) "The 'Become Investor Ready' event run by cmypitch.comwas outstanding. It gave an in-depth view of what Investors require, as well as the legal, IP and financial aspects of start-ups. It was presented in a professional, yet friendly manner and at the end I felt inspired to take Krowdbuy.comto the next level. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to get investment".

Ken Thompson (founder of Swarmteams.com) "I attended cmypitch Investor Readiness Course and found it immensely useful. If you are looking for investment and you don’t go to one of these courses you will probably show up as very naive to anypotential investors you meet which means they won’t take you seriously or even worse -take you to the cleaners. I now know the questions they will ask me and equally importantly what I should ask them".

Henrietta Green (founder of foodloversbritain.com) "Thank you so much. I found it hugely useful and helpful on so many levels – I learnt a lot, networked frantically, picked up some hugely beneficial tips and would certainly recommend such a day to anyone looking to be investor ready."

Michael Gilhooly (director of Premier Aviation) "The venue was excellent and the morning content of what should or should not go into a successful pitch and type of pitch was excellent. Furthermore the video presentation from well known and respected investors was very informative. The afternoon sessions were very good especially as we gained access to industry professionals such as lawyers and corporate finance professionals which was very useful. Finally the presentations from fellow "pitchers" and subsequent discussions were invaluable. A great day which was very well put together by you and your team".
