3/15 When you get to the Problem slide, don't just give a bunch of stats. Help explain why those stats matter and why what your pitching is a truly impactful problem.

2/15 The Intro slide is just a simple slide with the company name or logo, the CEO's name, and some contact information

3/15 The Problem slide is your chance to humanize the problem you are solving. I like a story using a real-world example to make the problem real and human and draw in the investors. remember the art of pitching is the art of storytelling.

I'm exhausted, but then the study must go on. Here's month four of the state of #OpEds in @IndianExpress @htTweets & @the_hindu.

April has been rougher than March.

It's actually been really really awful. In general, and for #OpEds too.

THREAD
Again, excluded Sundays since they're reserved for the usual columnists.

The quality of #writing has remained the same as the same writers have been writing here since time immemorial.

@IndianExpress had 130 #OpEds, @htTweets 78 & @the_hindu 122. #BringInMoreWomen
Of the 130 in @IndianExpress, women got only 18 bylines. This includes four joint bylines.

Their 'The Editorial Page', gave top billing to women ONLY ONCE. Wow. Aruna Sundararajan wrote on the lockdown dilemma.

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.

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?’
