The presentation is part of the New York Angels start-up company screening to be held at NYU during the Entrepreneurs Festival on Saturday, November 3. It’s an unusual presentation because she’ll be presenting both to potential investors in her business as well as an audience of NYU students.
“Making presentations to potential investors is a frequent part of my job,” Tan said. “But it’s rare to have the chance to do it in front of a larger audience that includes the entrepreneurs of tomorrow, and I’m honored to have been selected for this event.”
A popular speaker who always packs clear, succinct advice into a short presentation (check out her videos on YouTube or this blog for an example), Miranda Tan is passionate about helping small companies promote themselves using the power of PR and social media.
