Are these people with whom you have had prior communications about the investment opportunity or is this a general solicitation? Do you know anything about the recipients of the information, for example are they accredited investors?
If you are seeking to raise capital through a private placement you cannot make a general solicitation. I think you want to introduce your business without talking about an investment. There are restrictions on the type of solicitation you can make if you are planning on conforming to Reg. D and a private placement exemption. Focus on introducing your business and then at the meeting give people who are interested in investing make that interest known to you and then set up a second meeting with those who are interested.
