Getting a Venture Capitalist (VC) to take a business investment proposal seriously starts with a world-class presentation, according to business expert Marc Sparks. He has great professional advice in creating VC presentations that succeed. First on the agenda is to make sure nothing unnecessary or confusing is included. Too much flash and not enough function is a common mistake many people make in their investment offerings.
Sparks does not want anyone to misunderstand, each slide, video, or audio element in a presentation to a potential VC investor should be vivid, accurate in every detail, and smooth. All the data must be instantly explainable with any questions from the VCs. Sparks’ professional specialty is in developing such effective and investment-winning VC presentations. He has done so for many clients over the years.
He will not only do the ground work for a company’s initial VC seeking, he also mentors young entrepreneurs to teach them his portfolio of capital raising techniques.
Timber Creek says that Sparks insists that a business is made or quickly fails, based on the availability of funding to build a long enough runway to make the business fly up into the black ink of profitability as quickly as possible. He teaches them the importance of the age old adage: K.I.S.S., which stands for “Keep It Simple, Stupid!”
This means the VC presentations pop, but they are very real world and not simply creative writing. VCs see right through a ‘vaporware’ proposal. Sparks also advises on the manner of presenting to VCs.
Marc Sparks says never have just one person present, doing the presentation. There should be several people involved in the initial business present and contributing to the overall presentation. Everyone there should be high-energy, eager, willing, and on-board for all the VC members to get an eye and ear full.
He says he has done his process for over 60 client companies. In this way Sparks says he is the consummate serial entrepreneur. Besides helping others launch their businesses, he has owned several of his own, including an auto insurance agency and multiple restaurants.
As one of the most established entertainment companies, Lovaganza has embarked on a mission that will see the company offer a unique entertainment experience. Through the Lovaganza celebrations that will be held in 2020, the company is set to unite the entire world through shows that will help to create a sense of unity and love. Lovaganza has been using entertainment to unite communities but this time they are reaching the entire world to share a message of love on Tumblr.
With more than three years left before the main celebrations kick off, Lovaganza has promised to prepare an event that will be historical. Lovaganza also describe the celebrations as the biggest entertainment event to ever be held in the world featuring all countries. The preparations leading to the celebrations in 2020 are already on and in most countries shooting of the trilogies to be used while marketing is almost complete.
Set to initially be held in 2015, the management team of Lovaganza thought the event would not come out as expected if the company adhered to the set timeframe. The components acquired for the event before were not as superior as the ones that will be needed for the event to proceed as required.
Therefore, pushing the event to 2020 was a decision that created time for many things including marketing and planning. The company will procure all the technological components that are needed to make the presentations a success. Lovaganza can also integrate modern technology that is going to ease the implementation of different parts of the celebrations. Reaching the whole world to explain what the event will be all about is the first step the company needs to cater for.
The promotion process
To promote the celebrations, Lovaganza has come up with a team called the Traveling Show, whose purpose will be to travel across the world sharing details about the celebrations. The show will tour several parts of the world and will review the events that the company will air come 2020. It will begin in 2017 and should proceed through 2020.
Lovaganza, apart from uniting the world through entertainment, has also come up with plans to launch a foundation that will help children across the world to receive basic needs and their rights. The Lovaganza Foundation, which will be launched in 2018, will travel to several parts of the world urging governments and different organizations on lovaganza.com to support the provision of basic needs and amenities to all children.
Securus Technologies, a company that uses technology to improve living standards of imprisoned persons and streamline the operation of correctional agencies, has corrected misleading and inaccurate statement on Global Tel Link’s press release. Securus is convinced that GTL cannot proceed to seek compensation since the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeals Board (PTAB) has not approved patent No. 7,256,816, and the case is still pending in court.
The PTAB declined to review claims presented by GTL and, thus, the company cannot protect ‘816 patent as it claims. The court hearing is far from taking place since both parties need time to gather more evidence. Therefore, GTL’s one month to the hearing claim is unrealistic and misleading.
Securus has earned a reputation for its adherence to the solid business practices. The company ensures reasonable license agreements are in place before using patent technologies of other firms. Thus, GTL’s claim that Securus is infringing its patented video visitation technology is baseless. GTL’s financial practices are questionable since the company is spending a lot of money and time filing cases, rather than focusing on developing new technology. Rick Tehrani, the CEO of Securus Technologies, has stated that his firm will continue to uphold its reputation by correcting any misleading information released by Global Tel Link. The CEO said that his company was ready for healthy competitions.
Securus Technology provides cutting-edge parolee tracking, inmate communications, and information management solutions. It targets correctional agencies and public safety facilities in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and District of Columbia. The Dallas, Texas-headquartered technology firm has regional offices in Carrollton, Allen, and Georgia. It acquired JPay Inc., a premier technology powerhouse that delivered electronic payments, email, and different types of entertainment and educational applications to the correctional market. This acquisition has thrust Securus Technology into the most accomplished provider of services and products such as electronic payment, detainee tablets, and email.
