I created a pitch deck for my tech startup but not sure how to know if it needs improvement. Is there somewhere you can have pitch deck reviewed?

I've actually written two articles on pitch decks. Have a read but let me know if you have any questions.

Steven's comments and articles are spot on. You will constantly be getting feedback on the deck. Every time you pitch, have a person on your team (maybe you if you are solo) assigned to writing down the questions every listener has. You will see themes in the questions and you will be able to grasp what you need more or less of. Do not make changes for every issue; that will drive you insane. But when you have more than one person ask the same question, you need to think it through. Finally, forget any deep dive into the technology or the numbers at the pitch. If they do not like your idea, those will not save it. You have 10 or fewer slides to get them to be interested. Make sure every slide is helping, not hurting.
