Today’s guest on The Successful Pitch is Mark Mullen, the founder and the largest investor in Double M Partners, based here in Los Angeles, which is an investor in both early stage and series A. They have about 60 investors in total. He’s also the founder and largest investor in Mull Capital. They focus on investing in internet, media and communications infrastructure, with a big focus on business to business solutions, software and technology. Mark said he sees about 500 deals in a year and out of those 500, he will meet with about a 100 people and fund one or two of them.

When you get in the room with Mark, he doesn’t want to have you go through the pitch deck, because he’s already done that. He wants to hear about you and your family. What are your parents like? How many siblings do you have? Where did you go to university? How did you pick that university over another? You need to be able to sell yourself and your passion, because that’s really what your company is, is you and your passion. Be prepared to sell yourself with storytelling. He also talks about some successful exits he’s invested in, including one that Google bought. Find out more in this episode, enjoy.
