Description

**UPDATED MONTHLY WITH NEW VIDEOS, SPREADSHEETS & GUIDES**

In this course, you will learn about venture capital and how to crush your next venture pitch. In the last couple of years, I have been giving hundreds of venture pitches. One year ago, I switched sides and started investing in companies. In this course, I want to show you, how to develop convincing pitch decks and how to present them accurately. I believe venture pitching is not a talent, it is a skill! Any skill can be acquired. And, I want to help you do just that. This course includes everything you need to know about venture pitching. We will start with the basics of venture capital and will work our way up until we understand the mechanisms behind a venture capitalist's decision to invest in your business and will focus together on how to be as convincing as possible while we pitch. In this course, we will focus on the following topics: 

1. BASICS OF VENTURE CAPITAL - In this part of the course, we will have a look at how to apply for venture capital and why venture capital is so important. I will furthermore describe to you the focus of a venture capitalist and go step by step through a venture capital application with you. 

2. THE 10 STEP VENTURE PITCHING FORMULA FOR PROFESSIONAL PITCH DECKS - This formula, formerly only used by entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley, will now be taught in this course. I will show you in detail how to use this 10 step formula in order to nail every pitch. 

3. CONFIDENCE & EXPRESSIONS - If you want to succeed, you need to be calm and factual, you need leadership qualities and a clear plan in mind of where your business will be in 6, 12, 18, 24, 30 or 30 months. I will help you develop great confidence in yourself and train you to become a pitching expert. 

4. PITCH DECKS ANALYZED - I will show you the original pitch decks of companies such as YOUTUBE or LINKEDIN and we will together analyze them. Afterwards, you will be able to pitch just like Zuckerberg and Gates did many years ago. 

Knowing how to pitch could change your life. If you want to build a company but simply do not have the money to do so, you might be applicable to apply for venture capital. If you want to scale your business or want to move into new markets, you perhaps should again think about applying for venture capital. Learning how to convince venture capitalists and understanding their focus thus might help you a lot. Here are 5 more reasons why applying for venture capital actually makes sense: 

1. BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES - You have a brilliant idea but do not have the money to build the product needed in order to cash in? Then, you should apply for venture capital. 

2. IT HAS NEVER BEEN BETTER THAN RIGHT NOW - There has never been as much venture capital as right now in the market. If you do not take your chance now, and you wait, you perhaps not will ever get the opportunity again to get as much venture capital as right now. 

3. THE OPPORTUNITY MAY DRY UP - We are in an expansion now for already 7 1/2 years and very soon this field will dry up and it will get very hard for you to receive any venture capital, so better act now! 

4. BLANK SPACE - Especially in the app industry, there is an incredible amount of blank space (technologies/application that have not been invented/created yet). If you develop one of these apps, you will cash in massively! And in order to develop/invent these technologies/apps, you need venture capital! 

5. NOT PAYING BACK - Most venture capital does not need to be paid back. Of course, you will face some consequences if you waste the venture capital, like you will not receive any more venture capital in the future, nevertheless, it is better than getting a loan from the back and being in debt thousands of dollars. 

This course comes with 24/7 support from me and my team! Taking this course is completely risk-free!

7-Figure Entrepreneur, CEO & BESTSELLING Udemy Instructor

I scaled my FIRST business to 7 figures at AGE 18, since then build two 6-figure businesses and now scaled a SECOND business Teaching Hero, which currently is the world's leading online teaching agency, to 7 figures at AGE 20. 

At age 17, I got my PhD offered (declined it) for my work on human hair and skin cancer (basalioma and spinalioma in particular). In 2014, I also received the Special Scientific Award from the Max Planck Society, awards from the Helmholtz Association and Martin Luther Foundation, and appeared on national television in the United States, Poland, China, and Germany since then.

In addition, I received the German National Environmental Award for my environmental work and awards by the Royal British Embassy for my work in journalism!

STUDENT SUCCESS STORIES

 TIMO ALTBAUER - Berlin, Germany - Student of: "Business Development Masterclass: Learn to Build Businesses"
"Hi, I am Timo. I joined Leon's Business Development Masterclass in March 2017. Before I started the course, I did not know Leon but saw that his course is a Udemy bestseller. I thought the course looked fantastic and joined it. Leon right away welcomed me to the course, offered me his personal help and advised me to watch the course in order to afterwards have a personal talk with him via Skype. I watched the 13,5 hours course content, studied the course book, did the worksheets and homework included in the course and got personal feedback on my progress by Leon. The course itself was incredible. Leon put as he said in the promo video "his brain on paper". The course's outline is very clear and follows a step by step procedure which I really liked because I always felt like one piece in my thinking was missing. Later, I had to understand that many pieces were missing in my mindset. The course goes straight from business mindset to idea generation to financial modeling, business plan creation, the actual founding process of the company, to pitching, product development, sales management, marketing and so much more. 

Four months ago, I started my own company and am now already generating strong 5 figures every month! Leon and I have since then met in person and he took an entire evening to eye out the next steps on my journey. Leon's business development masterclass is the best business development course out there. I bought it for 15 USD and it literally made me 10.000s of dollars (and probably 100.000s of dollars in the long-term). Massive THANK YOU!"

☆ IVY YORK - MA, USA - Student of: "Confidence Masterclass: Become More Confident Fast"

"In school I was often bullied and since then struggled a lot with my confidence. Leon's course helped me with my confidence-related anxiety. For several years, I was afraid to talk to new people I met or to even go work. Leon's approach was the following: He first took me my fears, taught me how to trust people again and then helped me to become more open-minded and out-going. He was a true saint in my case and I am sure he will help you as well, whether you struggle like me with anxiety, are an entrepreneur who wants to give public speeches or just simply feel like you are not confident enough. If you have any further questions, give Leon your e-mail address and I will get in personal contact with you. I can only truly recommend this course!"

☆ WANG YURUN - Beijing, China - Student of: "SMART Learning: Accelerate Your Learning"

"Hi, my name is 雨润! For you Yurun! I started Leon's SMART Learning course in June 2017 and have to agree with all the great reviews the course has! 

Here in China, competition is tough and I have to study very hard in order to pass my university classes. Over the last 3 semesters I had been truly struggling with keeping up. That was the reason why I decided for Leon's course. His course was a true mind-changer; He taught me dozens of very helpful strategies and I am now saving hours every day that I can now use to relax a little bit. 

Additionally, I passed all of my university classes! THANK YOU! 谢谢!Your course was worth every penny!"
