Pitch decks are all very different. They are customized for the fundraising round, the industry, the country, the experience of the entrepreneurs.
This is the pitch deck, slide by slide, 9 slides long, to unite us all! [If you don’t care about the explanations, >here is the link for the deck. Feel free to use it for your fundraising!] Please note, this is a brief pitch deck, the one you send to test waters. For example, there are a few slides which are a combination of traditionally separate slides.
Before we start, here are the basics:
- Presentation in Google Slides, Powerpoint, Canva (not in Word!)
- Ideally, in english (🇺🇸/🇬🇧).
- Give the investor enough information to be interested but not too much that he may find an excuse to not invite you over for coffee.
- When finished, send the pdf! (Please never send the pptx, it’s not professional).
This first slide is pretty straightforward. Your logo on top and at the bottom the reason for the presentation (Seed Deck, Series A Deck, Investment Presentation, etc…) and then the date.
The date is useful for you and the investors you meet. If you meet the investors multiple times over the year, it will be easy for them to see how your numbers have evolved and how (hopefully) you’ve beaten your projections!
