As an angel investor who has invested in over 50 startup over the past 20 years, I’ve been pitched many hundreds of times. Almost all of those pitches had very real flaws that were quickly obvious during the pitch and would be obvious to any trained investor. As a result of the flaws, we would end up wasting precious time that could have been better spent getting to know the founder and their business better. So I decided to do something about it and created, with the help of other prominent Silicon Valley venture capitalists, a simple template that founders could use to create the perfect pitch deck. I can’t guarantee you’ll get funded with this, but I can guarantee that your odds will go way up and that the investors you are pitching will respect and appreciate your thoughtfulness and professionalism.
