Something a little more visual this week. We've taken Dave McClure's original "How to Pitch a VC" deck on Slideshare and zazzed it up a little bit.
Dave is the founder of the venerable 500 Startups in San Francisco. He is also an entrepreneur and prominent angel investor.
Thanks also to Tomas Bay from Slides that Rock for his guidance on all things slide deck design.
Now the deck.
How to Pitch a VC in 10 Slides or Less (redesigned).
1. Elevator Pitch
2. The Problem
3. The Solution
4, Market Size
5. Business Model
6. Proprietary Tech
8. Marketing Plan
Pitching to a venture capital fund or angel investors can be a daunting task. Not knowing how to prepare a pitch or how to structure that pitch is hard enough without having to sweat on the presentation itself.
Hopefully this deck can help you prepare and present your pitch with more conviction.
