Editor’s Note: Over the next two years, we’ll be hosting a series of GoFly Master Lectures where industry experts share advice, insights, and answer questions from anyone interested in participating in the GoFly Prize.

For the latest in our series of “Master Lectures,” we welcome Mourad Yesayan, a Principal at Paladin Capital Group. Yesayan is an investment lead for the firm’s Cyber Fund, which focuses on investing in early-stage companies in the US and Europe with solutions for cybersecurity and digital resilience.

Yesayan is currently actively involved in several of Paladin’s investments including Expel, RiskSense, Ursa, RiskLens, and previously worked with Unitrends (acquired by Insight Venture Partners).

In this lecture, he offers advice on mastering the VC pitch.
