The Building Blocks of a Pitch Deck

The building blocks of a pitch deck are the slides. Slides are like the panels of a comic strip; they break down the story of your venture into discrete digestible chunks. Each slide highlights a different aspect of the venture and furthers the plot of the pitch. Eventually, you’ll have a whole archive of slides to draw from and sequence for each meeting or presentation. These are the essential ten (not including your cover page):

• Overview

• Opportunity

• Problem

• Solution

• Traction

• Customer or Market

• Competition

• Business Model

• Team

• Use of Funds
