Dave McClure of 500 Startups was in New Zealand not too long ago as part of the Geeks on a Plane initiative. Here, he talks to NZTE about the best techniques for presenting your story when you're trying to raise capital. Hint: know your audience, keep it succinct, and acknowledging your vulnerabilities goes a long way to building credibility.
