Succinct and insightful

I listened to the what VCs are looking for. Amy was generous with her insights about VCs and the landscape. Keep it simple, don’t put everything in your slide, importance of story and your visuals and branding are just as important. Their key takeaways were a good reminder for me as I embark on this fundraising journey.
