Is your venture pitch-ready?

I see far too many founders focus way too early on creating a pitch, whether it’s to raise money or gain entrance into an accelerator. But what does it mean to be pitch-ready? I created a PowerPoint outline – not a presentation! – of what it means to be pitch-ready for whatever purpose. Rather than leave it to languish on my hard drive I’m posting it here. Before you dive into the multifarious tutorials on how to create a pitch, review this outline, it will save you a lot of wasted effort once you are ready to pitch.
