Strategy 1.05 | Pitch Deck v3
After gathering feedback from our Business Development team, we’ve revised our pitch deck to focus on key areas that would be of interest to our potential investors. Our goals for this pitch deck is to:
- Present on who we are and the social impact problems we’re trying to solve.
- Educate our potential investors on our solution and how we are different from our competitors.
- Share details on our target markets, business model, and financial and impact projections for the next five years.
- Provide our investors with a sneak peek of our product.
As this is our first time fundraising, we practiced our pitch deck with several industry experts for early feedback. Key takeaways and actions include:
Key Learning 1: Our problem slide is too high-level, and we need to hone in on the actual problem we are solving — our true value add.
Action: Be more specific on the real problems we’re trying to solve.
Key Learning 2: Project vetting and impact measurement is a huge undertaking.
Action: Think through: “What can we really do?” vs “What can/do we outsource?” Look into potential partnerships to help with impact evaluation and measurement.
Key Learning 3: Need to firm up on our “Why Invest Now” slide to walk through the trends/statistics that show why it’s a great time to build our startup now.
Action: Clearly define the opportunity and support with evidence.
We are continuing to iterate on the deck based on feedback we receive. We will continue to work on our presentation and trim it down to 10–15 slides for our upcoming presentations to investors in October.
