Rejection hurts. There's no denying it.

But just because your business pitch was rejected by a venture capitalist (VC) doesn't mean that your startup is doomed.

In fact, getting rejected can be a good thing. It can help you learn, grow, and become a stronger entrepreneur.

🧵
Here are three things to do when your business pitch is rejected by a VC:

1. Don't take it personally

It's easy to take rejection personally, but it's important to remember that it's not about you as a person. It's about your business pitch.
Maybe the VC didn't like your idea, or maybe they didn't think your startup was ready for investment.

Also remember,  VCs are bombarded with pitches every day. They can't invest in all of them, so it's not surprising that most pitches are rejected.

I lead the #SIRENStudy and have been studying the impact of prior infection with COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccinations on immunity for more than 18 months. We have published multiple studies with collaborators. The most recent preprint is available here medrxiv.org/content/10.110… 1/6
In this pre-print, which is under peer review, we demonstrate that 2 doses of vaccination on top of prior of infection, significantly reduces both asymptomatic & symptomatic infection compared to infection alone - Table 3 - the longer since primary infection the more effect 2/6
This is on top of the evidence provided in the original paper showing immunity 81-87% immunity with the original strains and early alpha period.... but just as immunity wanes from vaccines so it does from primary infection. 3/6

Who are the US religious right orgs seeking to influence the sex and gender debates?

This analysis from @openDemocracy is interesting (but not evidence of funding to UK gender dissidents)

Clip below is orgs tagged "anti-LGBT" spending in Europe, 2018

opendemocracy.net/en/5050/intera…
Some observations:

1) No gender critical campaigns or legal crowdfunders are getting funding from these organisations.

Crowdfunders are anonymous of course. This is what mine looks like - mainly small donations from lots of people.
2) The total is not that big $2.8m (£2.1m)

...for the whole of Europe.

(and around $7m for the world outside US)

By comparison Stonewall's annual budget is £8m, including £3m from the Diversity Champions programmes with employers, universities and schools

In his masterclass about crafting an effective pitch deck @YourStoryCo’s #TechSparks2020, @P_Kemps highlights some aspects that seem trivial but are important, some that are easy to miss, and some that mustn’t be missed. A 🧵-
1/ The title is as important as anything else in your deck. It should define your company in a single declarative sentence and can also be about your #mission & #vision.
2/ Tell a #story to explain your #purpose, tying your idea to a broader shift taking place in the world. Your company’s reason to be should be based on unique market/consumer insights driven by one or many of these changes 👇

Hier mein Thread, wie man gute journalistische Podcasts produziert! #podcast #podcasters #journalism #PodcastRecommendations
1. Sucht eine gute Story oder ein tolles Podcast Thema. Bleibt immer neugierig! Es gibt über 1 Million Podcasts in der Welt. Die Konkurrenz ist hart 😬
Quelle: podcastinsights.com/es/podcast-sta…
2. Immer einen Pitch schreiben! Ein Podcast ist ein Projekt, und man weiß nie, ob man seinen Vorschlag an irgendwelche Medien oder Institutionen verkaufen muss.

Practice Misfortune – Ask “What Could Go Wrong?”

Startup founders should be prepared mentally for bad stuff to happen.

It is an exercise to imagine that the shit will hit the fan so eventually when the shit hit the fan how to remain cool.

#startup #pitch #vcs
If the site gets hacked
If the next funding round is delayed
If co-founders split happens
If there is hostile offer to merge
If you don’t meet the sales targets
If you run out of cash
If you have to fire a team member
If IP gets stolen
If landlord send you eviction notice
Insurance (Negative) Visualisation - Premeditation of adversity. Think of it as foresight. Before something happens, you ask ‘What could go wrong?’ ‘What obstacle could pop up?’ ‘Where could I face difficulties?’
