Reena Jadhav of StartupDen interviews at Vator Splash

Howard Hartenbaum of August Capital reveals to Reena Jadhav of StartupDen the top 3 pitch mistakes made by investors. Watch the interview to learn what not to do but here's the cheat sheet:

1. Don't boil the ocean, focus on one problem. Trying to do too much will cost you credibility

2. Don't answer questions based on how you "think" the VC wants the questions answered.

3. If you bring a bunch of folks to the pitch, they should all speak.
