According to a recent Harvard Business School study, investors look at pitch decks, on average, for just 3.44 minutes. In person, you only have 10 to 30 seconds before the investor decides if it’s worth listening to you. Beth Susanne coaches her clients on what to say, what not to say, and how to say it, so that they get the results they desire and deserve quickly. Since moving to Europe from Silicon Valley in 2012, Beth has coached over 1,500 international technology startups to pitch successfully to investors, clients and potential partners, and to access strategic resources that help them quickly adapt their service/product to the US & global market. Clients who have completed her 2- day Pitch Intensive have raised an average of €3.8 million. Beth helps her clients create new projects and revenue streams, get funding, build the right team, and generate internal and external support so that each venture grows quickly and profitably. Her clients have successfully doubled and quadrupled in size in two to three years, and have individually won up to €2.1 billion worth of projects (an aggregate of more than €7 billion raised). The need to deliver a compelling message reaches beyond the startup community. Whether it’s moving an internal project forward, or selling your biggest client, the strategies Beth lays out ensure that your value proposition will resonate with your stakeholders. Beth identifies each of her client’s unique strengths, finds what may be blocking their communication, and fine-tunes their message so that it works across geographic and corporate cultures. She coaches startups, accelerators, incubators, university entrepreneur programs, corporate innovators, and frequently works with government organizations to raise EU funding, and with scientists to raise funding for research. Beth has worked with clients from 32 countries in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
