Raising Capital

Learn How to Pitch Investors and Raise Capital

Join Oren Klaff, who has raised over $400 million in capital for businesses over the last five years, as he breaks down the new rules for persuasive, frame-based pitching

While her mouth moved, and she continued talking, Oren was thinking one thing, This analyst is trying to ruin my deal.

She was a new consultant from a hard-hitting and illustrious venture capital background, and like a lot of consultants — and car mechanics — she needed to prove that her expertise and rates were worth it by throwing mud at everything that had transpired before her involvement. Problem was she was doing that by working something called the analyst frame.

As much as Oren tried to steer the conversation back to the deal, she kept interfering, delving into dry, granular, and ultimately un-novel, un-interesting aspects of financials. It was time for some frame disruption:

Finally, he just cut her off mid-sentence — “Excuse me, but what value will you bring to this deal once your engagement is through? We’re here working to make this happen and it will continue to happen once you leave.”

The room — stunned. The analyst — stunned. The only person not stunned — Oren. Because he knew what he had just done. He hadn’t offended her, insulted her, or torpedoed the momentum of his deal. Instead, he had firmly asked this analyst to qualify herself, massively disrupting her analytical frame — and returning the power of the social interaction comfortably in his hands.

He watched and listened — the entire room did — as she spent the next ten minutes giving everyone her background and experience, and when she was done, Oren said, “Great. So it’s easy for you to see why this deal…”

Boom. Back on track.

Seven days later, wire. For over $5 million.

Raising capital is not your typical sales situation. It’s a high-stakes powerplay and social interaction with its own set of rules. Master the rules, master the game.

Oren goes into material not covered in his breakout book Pitch Anything to help you turn the tables on investors and get the best deal for your company.
