What does Monsanto Growth Ventures’ Kiersten Stead look for in a pitch?

August 16, 2016

You may be a tech startup, pitching tech investors. Or you may be growing your company in a sector like agriculture.  The point it, a great pitch is a great pitch.

With that in mind, I wanted to share an enlightening conversation I had with Monsanto Growth Ventures' Director of Investment Kiersten Stead. Monsanto, as everyone knows, represents all things food - and Monsanto Growth Ventures invests in companies active in all areas of agriculture, from hardware to life sciences.

Stead's team hears about three pitches a day, over 500 hundred a year. What she has to say about effective pitching is well worth a listen. Enjoy!
