Pitching to investors isn’t an easy task, to say the least. The entire ordeal can be a daunting and at times, tough on an entrepreneur’s confidence level. Well, entrepreneurs fed up of pitching to countless investors now have chance to turn the tables. Capital On Stage is the unconventional global funding conference that puts top-tier investors on stage to pitch to the finest tech startup founders, instead of the reverse.
At Capital On Stage conferences, investors take the stage to deliver an unraveling five-minute presentation without slides to briefly explain who they are, their investment strategy, the markets they invest in, and what they bring to the table to support startups besides cash. The idea is to give startup founders better insights in what kind of investors (or funds) are out there.
Earlier this year, Capital On Stage held its first international conference in Tel Aviv, Israel. The innovative international investment event held at the premises of law firm Herzog Fox & Neeman drew in hundreds of highly regarded investors and promising entrepreneurs form all over the globe.
