Getting a mentor that has experience in presenting to the investors you are speaking to can help you gain insight into what those particular investors may be looking for so you can refine your pitch to their needs and save their time.
Getting a mentor that has experience in presenting to investors in general can help you tweak your presentation skills on the fly and know what should and should be in your email deck, your pitch deck, and what questions you should have answers to. (Hint: you should be able to do math quickly in your head and you should have a general knowledge of market, product fit, and the “how” of your business, tech or not.)
Getting a coach to help you refine your ability to gain rapport, raise your confidence and up your overall speaking ability will be helpful whether you ever pitch or not, so I would thumbs way up on this one.
