As part of working with Capital Factory and my day job at Silverton Partners, I've tried to put together two example presentations to help folks who are (1) pitching investors or (2) running board meetings. I received great feedback here last year and much of that has been incorporated into the 2010 versions. I hope this helps:
many companies I meet have very similar questions regarding pitching angel investors and VCs, in particular:
- What topics are required in a pitch deck?
- What depth of information is critical to have in the deck?
- What’s is the best flow from slide to slide?
This post covers a presentation outline and discussion for what I believe is a solid starting point for best practices in a typical, periodic board presentation by a start-up CEO. A good board book clearly communicates the state of the business to board members, over the course of 2-3 hours, such that board members are equipped to perform their duties. Starting point:
any / all questions and comments welcome; hope this is helpful.
