There are plenty of templates and best practices online that you can learn from. Google is a great place to start, but as I already took these steps so I don't mind showing you.

TLDR Version:

Unless you are pitching a design startup, your presentation doesn't have be sexy. It needs to be informative. (The Square deck looked like 90s PPT 101)

Less is more. The simpler you can make your presentation the easier it is to understand. The easier it is to understand the quicker you get funding. (Airbnb deck had 10 slides)

Key elements. Every good deck has at least these elements and often thats all they have.

  1. Problem your startup is solving
  2. How you solve this problem
  3. Market Validation
  4. Market Size
  5. Product Details
  6. Business Model
  7. Competition
  8. Competitive Advantage
  9. Team

You can add/adjust as you need. Financials, progress, roadmap/investment ask. But these are the core principles.

Keep in mind your investors are likely busy, busy people who sit through a number of these presentations on a daily basis, so keep it quick, keep it light and remember that most of the time people are investing in the people, not just the product (so you are part of the presentation too)

Hope that helps!

e to knoThe package we use for our clients raising money is Guy Kawasaki: 10 slides, 20 min., 30pt. font. Our clients get funded because we start with the baby, not the labor pains. Start with what traction you have achieved. Prove you are directionally correct. Ask what the investor would like to knowknow, then tell them what they are interested in.
