Pitching to Angels

The New York Times ran an excellent small business column on June 11 on how to pitch to angels. It confirmed what I have learned over the past 10 years of working with entrepreneurs on their business plans and attending angel and VC pitching sessions. Being well prepared is far more important that enthusiasm that verges on hyperbole. I've pasted a synopsis of the article below and a link. If you want to be successful, do your homework and get a great management team together. You also really need to hone your elevator pitch.
