Get the Next Meeting
•  The goal of your first meeting is NOT to secure funding. Your very first order of
business is to secure the NEXT meeting so the process can continue.!
•  You want to get an investor excited and intrigued enough to perform some due
diligence and convey that excitement to his or her partners.!
Deliver a STORY

to both the head and the heart – investors make decisions with both.!

to both the head and the heart – investors make decisions with both.!
•  All stories can be broken into three parts, which we’ll get to shortly. Your
pitch’s story should lead to your product being the LOGICAL conclusion. !

Preparing
•  Some pitches feel under-prepared. They don’t convey the basics (what, why,
and how), nor do they articulate the problem being solved by the product.!
•  On the other hand, some pitches feel stuffed full of too many details, either in a
sloppy fashion or in an overly “type A student” fashion.!

great, you’re better off raising future capital so you can step on the gas.!
Claiming
This Is Your
Last-Ever Round
•  This is somewhat common for entrepreneurs to say. But if the business is truly
great, you’re better off raising future capital so you can step on the gas.!
•  Additionally, taking venture capital implies a founder is trying to maximize
growth and returns. Claiming otherwise can hurt your credibility, as it conveys
a potential lack of understanding of the fundraise process and expectations.

The Show
As with any style pitch deck, you should articulate the basics of
WHAT you do up front. Founders fail to convey this surprisingly
often, which derails your pitch immediately. Don’t forget to
include this simple yet critical detail early in your own story.

What we’ve observed:!
After conveying the basics of WHAT you do, it’s now time to tell
the main story: WHY you exist. This is what makes The Show so
effective – it tells a compelling story, with you at the center.

Note that all compelling stories, from nursery

down into THREE parts, which we’ll discuss…

Compelling Story, Part 1: A status quo. What is the state of things
historically or today? For a pitch, the status quo is the observation you’ve
made about the market that will inevitably lead to Part 2 of your story…

But the status quo alone isn’t enough. It must lead to a problem. No problem,
no product. No product, no company. You want to really hammer home this
idea of the problem you solve, so we’ll dedicate a few more slides to just that…

During the seed-stage, many pitches
exhibit the same issue…!

You’ll want to speak to each point. For #1, we’d add this: “Investors make decisions using both of
these things. But unless you’re a world-class storyteller that can make plain slides come to life,
regular slides won’t cut it. The Show is more adept at targeting both the head (Is this a smart
business? Can it scale and make money?) and the gut (Am I excited about this? Does this feel huge?).

“This is the driving factor behind your pitch. If you’re launching to simply make money, most
investors won’t actually get excited. At NextView, for example, we look for ‘authentic’ founders –
people who identify a problem and understand their why, their mission. When things get tough or
challenges arise, as they always do, these founders will run through walls to keep building their
businesses. The Show effectively conveys this sense of purpose and succeed-at-all-costs mentality.”

“Stories shed light on things two sides might have in common, like shared purpose or common
interests. Seed VCs invest in people much more than they invest in business plans and ideas. The
Show show delivers a story can quickly get others excited about the opportunity. If structured
properly, The Show doesn’t require a lot of time to deliver. This fits within the constraints of a pitch
meeting and allows for important follow-up questions after.”

Our Unfair Advantage

Not only should your story in your pitch present your company as the logical
conclusion, it should drive home the “unfair advantage” every investor seeks
in entrepreneurs when it comes to actually gaining traction. It’s not just
about building something worth using – it’s about growth.

We focus exclusively on seed, all in support of our mission: Help founders give their companies the best possible start. ! NextView was founded in 2010 by Lee Hower (PayPal, LinkedIn, Point Judith Capital), David Beisel (About.com, Venrock) & Rob Go (eBay, Spark Capital).!

  • 7. We created TWO templates for startups raising seed capital.! You’re about to explore just one.! (It’s the better version for SlideShare.)! You can download BOTH versions at the end.!
  • 8. Before we get to the deck, some context…
  • 10. Pitch Decks 101 (What Every VC Wants You to Know)
  • 12. Get the Next Meeting
  • 13. Get the Next Meeting •  The goal of your first meeting is NOT to secure funding. Your very first order of business is to secure the NEXT meeting so the process can continue.!
  • 14. Get the Next Meeting •  The goal of your first meeting is NOT to secure funding. Your very first order of business is to secure the NEXT meeting so the process can continue.! •  You want to get an investor excited and intrigued enough to perform some due diligence and convey that excitement to his or her partners.!
  • 16. •  Many pitches fall flat because they’re not framed as a story. You need to play to both the head and the heart – investors make decisions with both.! Deliver a STORY
  • 17. •  Many pitches fall flat because they’re not framed as a story. You need to play to both the head and the heart – investors make decisions with both.! •  All stories can be broken into three parts, which we’ll get to shortly. Your pitch’s story should lead to your product being the LOGICAL conclusion. ! Deliver a STORY
  • 20. Under- or Over- Preparing •  Some pitches feel under-prepared. They don’t convey the basics (what, why, and how), nor do they articulate the problem being solved by the product.!
  • 21. Under- or Over- Preparing •  Some pitches feel under-prepared. They don’t convey the basics (what, why, and how), nor do they articulate the problem being solved by the product.! •  On the other hand, some pitches feel stuffed full of too many details, either in a sloppy fashion or in an overly “type A student” fashion.!
  • 23. Claiming This Is Your Last-Ever Round •  This is somewhat common for entrepreneurs to say. But if the business is truly great, you’re better off raising future capital so you can step on the gas.!
  • 24. Claiming This Is Your Last-Ever Round •  This is somewhat common for entrepreneurs to say. But if the business is truly great, you’re better off raising future capital so you can step on the gas.! •  Additionally, taking venture capital implies a founder is trying to maximize growth and returns. Claiming otherwise can hurt your credibility, as it conveys a potential lack of understanding of the fundraise process and expectations.  
  • 26. Sharing Your Deck in PowerPoint •  Nothing is more cringe-inducing than a sloppy looking deck. It’s so easy to avoid too – send PDFs, not editable files, to maintain design consistency.!
  • 27. Sharing Your Deck in PowerPoint •  Nothing is more cringe-inducing than a sloppy looking deck. It’s so easy to avoid too – send PDFs, not editable files, to maintain design consistency.! •  While this may seem trivial, we see this often enough – and you get so few chances to make a good impression – that it’s worth mentioning here.

  • 34. An alternative to the more “traditional” pitch deck.! Perfect for telling your story start to finish to investors! (and doing so in a timely manner).! This “meta” approach will teach you both the mechanics of these story-driven slides and convey the emotional arc.! The following slides are an example, and since there’s no exact template to telling your specific story, we’re teaching The Show by pitching YOU The Show.!
  • 35. An alternative to the more “traditional” pitch deck.! Perfect for telling your story start to finish to investors! (and doing so in a timely manner).! This “meta” approach will teach you both the mechanics of these story-driven slides and convey the emotional arc.! The following slides are an example, and since there’s no exact template to telling your specific story, we’re teaching The Show by pitching YOU The Show.! Look for these call-out boxes to learn more about a particular slide. These exist OUTSIDE the actual story arc (i.e. it’s our attempt at stepping back to analyze a slide). They’re not part of the pitch.

But unless you’re a world-class storyteller that can make plain slides come to life, regular slides won’t cut it. The Show is more adept at targeting both the head (Is this a smart business? Can it scale and make money?) and the gut (Am I excited about this? Does this feel huge?). Stories target the head and the gut.! Investors make decisions with both.! 31!

  • 83. Why Stories Succeed! 1 “This is the driving factor behind your pitch. If you’re launching to simply make money, most investors won’t actually get excited. At NextView, for example, we look for ‘authentic’ founders – people who identify a problem and understand their why, their mission. When things get tough or challenges arise, as they always do, these founders will run through walls to keep building their businesses. The Show effectively conveys this sense of purpose and succeed-at-all-costs mentality.” 2 Stories target the head and the gut.! Investors make decisions with both.! Stories convey the WHY.!

Seed VCs invest in people much more than they invest in business plans and ideas. The Show show delivers a story can quickly get others excited about the opportunity. If structured properly, The Show doesn’t require a lot of time to deliver. This fits within the constraints of a pitch meeting and allows for important follow-up questions after.” Stories target the head and the gut.! Investors make decisions with both.!
