Template seed stage investor deck for startups

This is my idealised template, seed stage, investor pitch deck for founders looking to pitch venture capitalists.

If you are Series-A plus, the format is similar, but much more metric/numbers focused. The more traction you have the less slides you need to write!

Please note it needs to be adjusted for different business models, and designed to suit your branding. The logic of the information you want to communicate is key. The more you make a VC think and have to research, the more likely you are to get a no.

The format was designed as follows:
#1: Basis was from a detailed, private email from one of the absolute top VC and founders in the world on what they want in a deck
#2: My experience reading a whole lot of decks and conversations with founders, thinking what is missing and was good (I.e. how can founders less likely get a no for information reasons)
#3: Referencing all the templates and literature publicly available on best practice. This stands on the shoulders of giants before me.

  • Forget about surgery, pills and weights, they DONT work! This DOES work, but you need to follow the methods contained in the guide. Let's be honest, penis size is an important aspect of any man's life whether they want to admit it or not. The market is flooded with products and solutions that claim to have the answer to making your member bigger, but usually these products fail to deliver. Luckily, I happened to come across what might be the "Holy Grail of Penis Enlargement", it's written by this guy named John Collins and it's called the Penis Enlargement Bible. What I found mind blowing about John's program is that he backs up his claims with actual video proof and testimonials from customers who have used the product. It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I would say most of these videos are worth 3 to 4 inches! Forget extenders, pills, suction devices and surgery. They are either expensive, too painful or they just don't work. The Penis Enlargement Bible is a proven two step program that combines natural over the counter supplements with a specially designed exercise regime to achieve up to 4" of growth within just a few months.

  • let's be honest. There are a lot of crazy devices, pumps and p.ills that all claim to be the solution to adding BIG length to your penis. However, most, if not all of these solutions don't pan out, or the growth is only temporary. I guess you could always consider surgery, but if you are anything like me, the thought of having a sharp metal object anywhere near your junk makes you quiver with blood curdling fear :-) Well, it just so happens my friend John, who I met at a men's health conference a few years back, has literally stumbled upon the key to natural male growth. Unlike other systems out there, his involves two unique components: 1. Restarting biological growth that boys experienced during puberty, turning them into men. 2. Performing tested and targeted exercises to encourage blood flow and supersize growth. John has just released a completely ZERO COST enlargement exercises guide where you can discover the proven techniques to start REAL and PERMANENT growth.
