Pitch Decks represent perhaps the most important document your company will ever produce. They represent the first route any investor takes when looking to your business. As such, it is vital that this document has the ability to ‘grab’, and then ‘hook’ investors.
a) Identifying a Problem
b) Communicating a Solution
c) Proving the Market Value of your product
d) Demonstrating the benefits of your product over others
e) A strong Business model
f) Insight into the team leading your project
g) A convincing call to action
h) Milestones – both future and achieved
Once you have identified these key points, you can use these ideas to create a great pitch deck. Although opinion differs as to how many slides one should include in the pitch itself, 10 – 15 tends to be the agreed number of slides. Bearing in mind how each slide corresponds to the basic structure above, each slide should be labelled in a similar vein to these below:
1) Company Overview
2) Company Mission
3) Your Team
4) The Problem
5) The Solution
6) The Market Value
7) The Product
9) The Technology
12) Business Model
Now you have the structure and themes for your pitch deck. However, this structure is the same that all companies will use in all their pitches. What is vital at this stage is elevating your pitch and allowing it to stand out from the others.
