Innovation Fund Webinar Recap: Your Questions Answered

by: | Jun 15, 2015

Today, we hosted a webinar to answer entrepreneur questions about our Innovation Fund Open Call.

Below, we’ve summarized some of the broader questions we heard. In addition, we’ve included a link to the recording and meeting notes.

Should I apply?

If there is any doubt, yes! We define media very broadly.

Do I need a pitch deck?

Yes. It does not have to be fancy or complicated, but yes. We will be publishing a post this week with more details about what makes a good pitch deck.

Do we need to be in San Francisco? 

No. You can chose to participate in pitch opportunities (a.k.a. Demo Days), and you will be invited to the annual NMV Summit which offers opportunities to meet investors, customers, and the entrepreneurs in NMV’s portfolio.

For the full list of questions and answers, click here (we’ve also included the answers to some questions we have received via email). Or, watch the video!

Stay tuned for an upcoming blog post about what makes a good pitch.
