What It’s Like to Pitch at VCIR

Roger Fillion has a great, detailed article in today’s Rocky Mountain News on Todd Vernon’s experience pitching his company – Lijit – at the recent Venture Capital in the Rocky’s conference.  If you missed the conference (or the pitch), here’s Todd’s first slide (that Roger builds his article around.)


I thought Roger did a super job of getting inside Todd’s brain in this article.  I also thought that Todd’s pitch on Lijit was one of the best at the conference.  I recognize that I’m biased because (a) I’m a long time friend of Todd’s, (b) I’m an investor in Lijit, and (c) he compares me favorably to Paris Hilton.  But – if you are an entrepreneur looking to pitch your new company, this is a great example.

    First page of Rocky Tech… I thought the article was great; just wish I could have seen the whole Pitch. What a first slide, bet that had everyone laughing.
