Elia, who has been a publicist and business owner for over 20 years, has prepared her clients for meetings with investors, written business plans for clients to present to secure funding, and presentations to secure product distribution and other deals. She has also prepared hundreds of clients for national TV interviews, teaching them techniques to control their nerves and stay focused, and developing answers to the tough and simple questions they may be asked. “I want to help people to feel confident prepared and able to provide the specific information needed so that they can seize every great opportunity,”
Elia provides these tips for anyone seeking investors, whether from the Sharks or others, and will go into more detail on the teleseminar:
1. “Be able to describe your business model clearly and succinctly.
2. Practice your answers to the obvious questions.
3. Think about “what’s in it for them” (WIIFT) and what you’re asking from them in terms of their time and resources.
4. Consider what you will do if one of the Sharks makes you an offer that differs from your own.”
