It is important to understand your audience and deliver a pitch that meets their expectations. Some investors will want information on market size and opportunity; others will appreciate customer acquisition data and milestones. To address this, most startups have a basic pitch deck template that includes the essential slides
– business model, problem, solution and team – with additional deck slides added to meet the needs of individual investors.
The best pitch decks use less than 20 slides. The order each slide appears in your presentation is your choice, but most ventures will place their team pages at the beginning or end of the pitch deck. However, experts like Reid Hoffman
(LinkedIn) recommend that you open your pitch with the investment thesis and leave the team page until the end.
To help you understand each pitch deck element, we will be pitching some existing and fictional companies to you. Each slide you see has been created with the Pitch Deck Template
