A pitch deck is one of the most important presentations that a new startup will make to investors. It is your time to present your business plan in hopes that you land that big investment. Preparing an excellent deck ahead of time is the key to success in a pitch presentation.
If you decide to use a slideshow, there are many things you can do with it to make it a winning presentation. You can use tools to add audio, video, and animations to elevate your pitch. These opportunities will grab the audience’s attention and keep them focused on every word you say. Ultimately, your goal is to improve retention, state the facts, and ensure they remember you and your company.
Your video pitch must showcase the company’s talent, exceptional product or service, and financial projections showing how you intend on making the investors’ money.
The Ultimate Guide To Pitch Decks
What is a Pitch Deck?
A pitch deck is a presentation that a startup and entrepreneurs will show investors for a round of financing. It should be roughly 10 slides and a complete presentation of your company’s product or service, competition information, marketing strategies, finances, and projections. Usually, a pitch deck will be accompanied by additional supporting materials that gets emailed to the audience, but the presentation itself should be short and to the point.
The presentation consists of visuals showing the data and how your product works. The aim of the presentation is not only to sell the product but to sell yourself. Why are you the best? Why should they give you their money?
