You’ve got a great idea, but how do you sell it to investors? Tech blogger extraordinaire Paul Graham has a few ideas:

  1. Explain what you’re doing.
  2. Get rapidly to demo.
  3. Better a narrow description than a vague one.
  4. Don’t talk and drive.
  5. Don’t talk about secondary matters at length.
  6. Don’t get too deeply into business models.

There’s a LOT more to this article, and honestly these are principles that could apply to a lot of other situations than just presenting to investors.
