This is my idealised template, seed stage, investor pitch deck for founders looking to pitch venture capitalists.
If you are Series-A plus, the format is similar, but much more metric/numbers focused. The more traction you have the less slides you need to write!
Please note it needs to be adjusted for different business models, and designed to suit your branding. The logic of the information you want to communicate is key. The more you make a VC think and have to research, the more likely you are to get a no.
The format was designed as follows:
#1: Basis was from a detailed, private email from one of the absolute top VC and founders in the world on what they want in a deck
#2: My experience reading a whole lot of decks and conversations with founders, thinking what is missing and was good (I.e. how can founders less likely get a no for information reasons)
#3: Referencing all the templates and literature publicly available on best practice. This stands on the shoulders of giants before me.
