Dear Venture Capitalist,
If I can take the time out of my busy schedule to come and meet you in your office, usually at your request, then I expect you to be there ready to meet me. AND, by "ready," I mean both on time and prepared.
I expect at least one partner in the meeting throughout the whole pitch. I expect to have some basic services, such as a projector, to present you my company. I expect that you will not be reading email or answering calls while I am talking. I expect that you have some idea about my company and my sector.
It would be nice if you asked a couple questions that showed you were listening. It would be even nicer if you gave me a realistic indication of initial interest.
BTW, please leave your dog or other pets out of the pitch room.
