Pitched Mr. Ford Tamer --
I have been the CEO of 5 start-ups, so I have been horsed around by the big boys more than a few times.....but this is a classic.
Pitched him while he was on a speaker fone, in the car, had not read the exec summary, had not looked at the power pt - wind noise was high, conversation garbled, questions repeated, totally distracted, no continuity -- it ends with the following -
We are very interested, please send me all your patent filings so I can show them to your competitor to see if he thinks your technology will work --- I told him fine, no problem, the pre-money is 85M and then I heard a scream, crashing glass, squealing tires and then silence....
