If you're an entrepreneur who wants to attract an investor's attention, you need to ask yourself three questions.
1. Is your energy infectious?
2. Will your pitch resonate with investors so they can see what's in it for them?
3. Can you quickly pitch your idea in a way that makes the investor understand its value?
These questions came from Daymond John, founder of the FUBU clothing line and one of the investors on "Shark Tank." But even if you can check these three boxes, there's one further requirement that's just as important.
"They just really have to like you," he said. "They have to want to fight with you and feel like you're a partner, and potentially a partner for the rest of your life."
