Compelling Pitch Decks for Startup Founders
INVESTOR PITCH DECKS FOR STARTUP FUNDING
Why hire a consultant
Appropriate funding at the right time is critical for scaling modern businesses. Everyone knows that raising capital requires persistence and undivided attention. For a startup founder like you, time is the most scarce resource. Any diversions, including constructing the capital raise materials could derail the momentum of your startup. Hiring a startup focused consultant is perhaps a better choice for emerging somewhat unscathed through the grind of startup funding process.

Pitch deck development process
The process begins by visualising the business from the founder’s point of view. Initial meetings aim to gauge the founder’s views on markets, competition and product roadmap.
• Question the founder’s assumptions about the market and their capital raise expectations
• Review the existing documentation
• Grasp the startup’s vision
• Discuss roadmap, revenue run rate, burn
• Go-to-market and future fundraising plans
2. Research & Business Model Critique
Research and business model analysis
This step entails the critique of startup’s business model and the environment.
• Market size estimation – TAM, SAM and attainable market share
• Segmentation and competitive benchmarking
• Competitive differentiation and value proposition
• Pricing and marketing strategy
• Analysis of Customer Lifetime Value (CLTV) and Customer Acquisition Costs (CAC)
• Recent competitor valuations
3. Pitch Deck Development
The final step that is to condense all the information from the research and immersion into an investor-facing book that includes a pitch deck, a financial model and an investor brief.
• Well-structured financial models
• Sensitivity analysis
• Creating a compelling narrative
• Pitch Deck design
• Meticulously review the investor presentation and core documentation to check for consistency in financials, projections, and statistics
