Fall 2015 Week 4

This week at FounderFuel…

Our first panel review of the program, where the Real Ventures team, alumni and half of our mentors sit in on rotating panels to give each team feedback on their most recent pitch. If you’re a mentor and weren’t at the first panel review, you will be notified of the next one! Here’s what was overheard…
“If you don’t win, then fucking go home.”
“People were too unenthused to even clap a little for you.”
“There is no vision in your pitch, no idea of where you’re going.”
“What has ACTUALLY happened to this business in the last 4 weeks?”
“Make me want to me interested in your product. Right now I’m not.”
“Your company is coming off like a glorified business competition idea.”
“This pitch isn’t to sell your product to developers, it’s to sell it to investors.”
“That pitch clearly showed me that you have no true confidence or belief in what you’re building.”
…safe to say it was constructive!
