We were fortunate enough to have Barbara Corcoran, regular on ABC's Shark Tank and Onevest adviser, on an exclusive webinar to talk about her experience as a startup investor. She was refreshingly honest, authentic, and straightforward. Here are the five things that Barbara always looks for in an entrepreneur:
- Good at overcoming objections and taking feedback
- Good at "plain" talk (clear in explaining the business)
- Long-term passion
- Marketing prowess
You can read more about the webinar, including priceless quotes from Barbara, in Joe Panetierri's (AfterNines Inc.) article here.
The webinar also included a Digital Demo Day, where StyleLend, a women's fashion rental company, and Imperative, a career-development site for businesses, gave impressive pitches to the investor audience. After the brief pitches, there was a Q&A period where investors could ask question directly to the presenters.
Onevest's Digital Demo Days are just some of the wide array of educational resources we offer for investors and founders. Visit our events page to see what else we have coming up this month.
