How to Create an Epic Pitch Deck That’ll Get You Funded

  • 1. How to Create an Epic Pitch Deck That’ll Get You Funded Tips, hacks and value bombs
  • 2. • Serial entrepreneur. • Wrote 5 books, one- best seller • Been on over 80 radio shows, TV and other media • Helped dozens of entrepreneurs get funded • Founder and owner of Crowdsourcia • Host of Ask the Crowd Podcast on iTunes Mike Volkin Built and sold 3 companies
  • 3. Mike Volkin Get feedback on your pitch deck from a diverse range of expert perspectives.
  • 4. What will you learn • What slides you must include in a pitch deck • How to make those slides look crazy awesome • How to get an investor to want more information • You have a business model in mind • You’ve done research on the competitive landscape • You are considering getting funded I am assuming
  • 5. There is no one right way… So many variations…
  • 6. Pitch deck essentials • Title • Problem you solve • Solution • Market size • Go to market strategy • Competitor matrix • Team • Use of funds • Exit strategy • Conclusion
  • 7. Title slide | Timing Develop a 7 second or less sentence that gets investors attention right from the start. You need that funny, quirky, crazy, unique, why didn’t I think of that, ah-ha moment from an investor. Doesn’t have to be an elevator pitch.
  • 8. Title slide | Example Ding! You are now free to move about the country. Everyone’s Private driver. Tradesy turns your closet into a pile of cash Use visuals if you can!
  • 9. Title slide | Example If Quora and Upwork had a clever, inquisiti and really cool baby… This one sentence will probably take longer to create than the rest of your entire deck. Business projects Social feedback
  • 10. Problem slide | Pain points Show that the market has evolved and the current solutions don’t solve the clients’ needs/problems. What pain point does your product/service address? (preferably one sentence) Biggest pain points • Takes time • Costs money • Increases vulnerability
  • 11. Solution slide | Value proposition How will you solve that pain point? This could be your value proposition. The investor will want to see how you can solve this problem better than your competitors.
  • 12. Solution slide | Example - Airbnb
  • 13. Market slide | The big mistake Base the market size on your current traction multiplied by users/services over time. Don’t get carried away with the numbers, just show that the market is interesting and that you have the ability/experience to go after it. Pre-revenue? Don’t pretend to know your market share. Instead, show market share for your competitors. Investors will use their success as a benchmark. Scary Mary’s Cupcakes: “People spend 855 billion dollars a year on food, if we can get each person on this planet to eat one of our cupcakes once a week we would make blah, blah, blah." Investors hate this. Once an investor doubts your market size they are going to doubt the credibility of your entire deck.
  • 14. Market size slide | TAM, SAM, SOM TAM = Total available market (total market demand) SAM = Served Available Market (size of that market demand you could serve) SOM = Share of Market (how much of the market you’ll realistically obtain)
  • 15. Go-to-market slide | Goal Demonstrate how you will get your product/service to your customers (without overspending). How will you drive revenue? What sales channel will you target? • Sell direct to customer • Licenses • Partnerships • Merger-acquisition
  • 16. Go-to-market slide Some other key questions to answer: • What do you expect your customer acquisition costs (CAC) to be? • What are the main risks to your model? • What’s your plan for addressing them? • What’s your sales funnel and production process. • Any key partnerships already in place? • How will you gauge your progress? • What would success look like? Don’t over engineer this slide. Just show you have an actionable plan. The team slide will show that you’re the right team to carry out this plan.
  • 20. Competitor matrix | Goal Your goal is to show your competitive advantage and show it in a way that can’t easily be repeated by your competitors. Crowdsourcia is the only company that brings together multiple pre-vetted experts to collaborate on your projects. The result is a diverse range of perspectives that saves you time and money. But more importantly, you’re able to make the right strategic decisions, faster.
  • 21. Competitor matrix | Graphically represented
  • 22. Team slide | Quiz Investors mainly invest in: A) Great business models B) Interesting niches C) People
  • 23. Team slide | Quiz Investors mainly invest in: A) Great business models B) Interesting niches C) People
  • 24. Team slide Chrissy Snow Secretary Jack Tripper Chef Janet Wood Florist • Years of experience and industry served • Degree • Accomplishment #1 • Accomplishment #2 • Awards/Certifications • Years of experience and industry served • Degree • Accomplishment #1 • Accomplishment #2 • Awards/Certifications • Years of experience and industry served • Degree • Accomplishment #1 • Accomplishment #2 • Awards/Certifications
  • 25. Use of funds slide | Examples Investors will want to know how their money is being used and how it is going to help you achieve your goals. Examples: • Build inside sales team • Expand marketing team • Build support team • Buying inventory to reduce production costs • Product development • Focus on enterprise sales • Expand product/service offerings If you have already raised money, be sure to let them know.
  • 26. Use of funds slide Graphically represent if possible
  • 27. Exit strategy | What investors want Investors goals: 1) Want their money back 2) Get their money back tenfold Investors want their money back, ideally in 5-7 years
  • 28. Exit strategy | Type of exits Initial Public Offering (IPOs): few and far between today. Mergers and acquisitions (M&As): When a larger company acquires a start-up to gain a strategic advantage. Royalties and revenue sharing: Some companies are not good targets for either M&A or IPOs but they still have investment potential. These companies can return multiples of VC and angel investment through royalties or revenue sharing. (i.e. oil and gas or movie deals are structured this way).
  • 29. Exit strategy | Example
