How to create a successful pitch deck
A strong pitch deck not only serves to reinforce your brand to investors. It also demonstrates that you understand what your business is and who your customers are. Here are some things to consider:
Engage potential investors by telling an exciting story. Talk about how your startup got its start or the connection you have to the problem you’re solving.
A pitch deck should be clear, compelling, and straightforward. About 10 to 20 slides should be enough to hit all the key points.
Investors want to get a feel for the company and the energy behind your team and your offers. Don’t be afraid to show personality with graphics, visuals, and brand colors/fonts to show just how much your startup stands out.
Anticipate what your investors need to know and hit those key points up front. If your presentation is too long, you’ll start to lose your audience’s attention (and money).
