Create Convincing Pitch Decks Professionally
The pitch deck has long been a usually mandatory part of any business pitch in the United States and is becoming increasingly popular in Germany. This additional documentation tool supplements the business plan and allows more visual design over the sometimes rather dry presentation form of the business plan.
Usually used as a startup pitch deck, you are going to use the slide deck (typically a set of PowerPoint slides) to make a compact, visually appealing pitch presentation available both as PDF to email to your potential financing partners and also to give on location. Visual design aesthetic, a good structure and a focus on the essential success factors of your startup, designation of clear milestones and growth targets are the key to a convincing startup pitch deck.
The Convincing Pitch Deck: Individualization Is Key
The pitch deck usually consists of 10-12 slides, but can in some cases be much more extensive depending on the specifications that need to be emphasized for your pitch presentation at that point in time. Experienced entrepreneurs know that they need to adjust their startup pitch deck for each investor slightly to address the particular focus of the VCs or business angel.
For example: If a VC is a) more interested in the social aspects of a startup, another may have b) an affinity for numbers. Still others want c) more background on the team, or d) a particularly detailed description of the product, or e) the client value.
Priority: Pitch Deck vs. Business Plan?
A lot of work can cause (or create) inconsistency risks, especially if you have never created a detailed, classic business plan before. As you are often asked for a BP after successful initial talks, it may be worth considering whether the business plan really should be of secondary importance to the pitch deck. We at BrainHive recommend first creating the business plan and then the slide deck (rough sketches of both documents can and should of course always be made no matter how you set the priority).
PS: We know that the idea to replace BP with pitch decks is popular these days. The argument that no one would have time to read a business plan may have a kernel of truth, especially in the US. However, you should, if you truly believe in your idea, be convinced of the benefits of a fully elaborated document explaining your business model perfectly. If not for the harried investors (as tech startup magazines say), then at least for yourself. If you have any more questions, we would be happy to help you with the business plan.
BrainHive: Convincing Pitch Decks
As a business plan consultancy that has been on the market for many years, we have recently started producing pitch decks, one-pager business plans and even pitch videos.
The requirements to founders who need financing have increased enormously in recent years as regards the technical and document complexity. Investors have always been very careful and require a lot of documentation from candidates. Today’s digital options expand the scale of possible information gathering considerably, so that founders rarely satisfy potential investors with insufficient or incomplete documentation nowadays.
The good news: In addition to traditional banks, today there is a variety of other options available to successfully obtain financing. In light of these the pitch deck is no longer optional, but imperative.
