Tweetables

Paint a picture to #investors. Become the #Picasso of Pitches.

There's a lot of first time entrepreneurs that don't have experience, so explain to your investors why you're the right team.

Just because you've made a mistake, doesn't mean you should stop dreaming.

No matter what we're doing as entrepreneurs, if we're learning in the process, we're growing and we should never stop learning/growing.
