One of the most important steps on the path to entrepreneurship is presenting to venture capitalists. But despite the best efforts of newbie entrepreneurs to hook a VC with extensive presentations, studies show that 75 percent of VC’s actually lose interest in the first 10 minutes of a presentation. The truth? VC’s don’t actually care about most presentations. They often grow disinterested in long, tiresome slideshows that fail to uphold the dogma that “short and sweet” is generally best.
