Over the past 7 years, I have been many times in a position to (help) build pitch decks for early-stage startups. Because I suck at designing slides, I started to steal inspiration from famous pitch decks.
This is my homemade methodology to assess early-stage startups. It's a simple but thorough checklist that prospective founders, investors, and employees can go through before committing their time or money.
This playbook is my home-made, battle-tested process to prepare the structure, content, and design of a typical early-stage startup pitch deck. These 2 hours of prep work will save you 10x more time down the road, I promise.
It's really hard to find a good template to build your startup pitch deck. Most of what you find online - both free and paid - sucks. Either the slides are ugly, or the deck is poorly structured, or both.
