You have a great coffee meeting with an investor but it isn’t quite a pitch. How do you phrase the ask? Or will they ask if they are interested? How do you frame this so as not to sound desperate, but strongly enough to show you’re pushy enough to sell? Silicon Valley insider stuff here, think experienced angels and vcs. Lots of angel friends who’ve met me for coffee but haven’t stepped up yet, so I wonder if I’m going about this wrong. I was told if you want money, ask for advice, but now I wonder if that’s too passive.
