We are a young European start-up company in the engineering field. We have to raise money from investors, especially venture capital. First contact to potential investors is via Email. A presentation of our business is attached to any email. The subject of your job is exactly this presentation. See attachment.

We spent lots of time writing this presentation so that we are happy with the structure and content. What we need help for is proofreading and editing. The language should follow the KISS principle, i.e. easy to understand and to the point. Language is American English.

My budget is at the most 150 USD. I do care a lot about your excellent references and your excellent grades at the relevant Elance-tests. Also, the faster you can deliver the better.
