The Green Knight: Startups Should Never Pay to Pitch
An excellent post from my friend and fellow entrepreneur, Bryan Hassin: The Green Knight: Startups Should Never Pay to Pitch.
These pay-to-pitch scams start off innocently enough. There is often no mention of a fee up front. Then, if you “apply” (a classic sales/manipulation trick: making YOU apply to THEM so that you want them to take your money in order for you not to feel rejected), you make it to the “next round,” and then they casually drop the bomb that, oh by the way, there will be a fee of several thousand dollars to present.
