In this video clip, Codie Sanchez, speaker, entrepreneur, investor and CEO of www.CodieSanchez.com, offers three tips that yield more successful fundraising results. Angel investors are constantly being bombarded by requests, so it’s difficult to break through the noise if you don’t have the proper processes in place. Start with self-awareness; don’t ask an investor to sign an NDA before they’ve heard your idea. Keep it simple when explaining your idea and why it will work. Finally, know that you’ll hear “no” often, but be persistent in a smart way by following up.

“What is the one thing that this company really does? Keep it stupid simple.”

More about our expert: Codie Sanchez has been: a Latina journalist covering human trafficking in Mexico, a finance exec running an international investment division for First Trust Portfolios, a speaker talking to hundreds, a podcast host on The Struggle Isn’t Real and a startup CEO on the Today Show. When she isn’t presenting to pensions or government and sovereign wealth funds, she’s running one of her startups, consulting with the companies she angel invests in, advocating for the next generation of women and Latinos in business or running her motivational and business-building company at codiesanchez.com.

She has been featured in Fast Company, People en Español, Huffington Post, Business Wire, Telemundo and Univision. She brings ideas in tech and innovation to Corporate America, and to entrepreneurs and fellow strivers across the country. She has a masters from Georgetown University, and ESADE, a MBA from FGV and a BA from Arizona State University. She believes if we can increase the number of diverse individuals and minorities in positions of power we will have a healthier society and greater equality.
