  1. 1. Business Plan Presentation format This is a guiding document and not a questionnaire. The points given in each slide are to help you focus and guide your thinking and not questions that need to be responded to.
  2. 2. Business Plan Presentation Format   The investor presentation must be clear, concise and compelling to: o  Generate investor interest and build confidence o  Lead to additional investor meetings   Should be 20-30 minutes in length   Charts, graphics, pictures and verbiage should be simple and easily read (no “eye tests”) o  do not use colours which don’t show up clearly on white background e.g. yellow / pink   Each slide should have between 3 and 6 bullets that are succinct (no paragraphs, uncluttered) 24/01/14 2
  3. 3. Business Plan Presentation Format   Fonts o  Better to use white background with black and red or blue fonts o  Use Arial 23 for the body of slide and Arial 34 for the header   Please restrict the number of slides to 30 / 32 as more than that is difficult to go through in a 45 mins interaction   Please strictly restrict file size to 1MB   Presentation format may vary depending on the company but the following format provides a reasonable order and flow – it is but one approach to making investor presentations. 24/01/14 3
