You’ve got one shot to land an investor for your business; can you do it? Brian Folmer can and his startup FirstLook is thriving, even after launching just two days before COVID-19 shut down New York City. Brian teaches us about drafting your pitch to building a buzz to growing your business enough to be able to say ‘no’ to new customers.
Brian is a two-time founder who currently leads FirstLook, a subscription box full of emerging, high growth consumer brands for early-stage investors. Before FirstLook, he led BD & Strategic Partnerships at XRC Labs, International Operations at Victoria’s Secret, and founded a previous startup through a startup technology accelerator in Cleveland. Brian joined AKPsi while attending The Ohio State University. Today you can find him at the WeWork Consumer Labs in NYC.
