I knew nothing about these folks when they contacted me about pitching to their group in New York for an upcoming CEO Presentation. Even though I had just closed on a round of funding you always hesitate turning down a chance to pitch for the next opportunity down the road. Regretfully I did not check this site for a review.
I should have known better from the name - which is so 80's - back when Japan was the business equivalent of Godzilla.

The good news if there is good news is I made the preliminary presentation via webex. I as kept waiting for 45 minutes and then told that I had only 15 minutes - 10 for presentation & 5 for questions instead of the 25 that i had been promised. No problem, I can pitch in 10. Did the best I could in 10 minutes with the deck that had just recently won me my most recent round of money. At the end of the pitch I was told how bad the presentation was and how it needed "serious work" and that there were people on the call that could help. I am in no way claiming my pitch is perfect - no one's presentation ever is - but this was over the top. It began to feel like an old time aluminum siding sale - one guy is in the front yard commanding your attention while the other ones are in the back creating damage in order to sell you something you don't necessarily need. Sure enough one of the group who is in Investor relations/PR sent me an email about his services and how he might be able to help "tweak" the company. No one has asked form money yet in order to present but I am expecting that soon. steer clear.
