What To Do During Your First Investor Deck

A List of Dos and Don’ts

Many entrepreneurs are about to pitch their company to investors for the first time. It’s an exciting time, but also a stressful one. Not only are you trying to sell your company, but you’re also trying not to look like a fool in front of some powerful people who could make or break your business! If this is you, here’s what to do during your investor deck.

The first thing you should know about your investor deck is that you shouldn’t be too hard on yourself if it doesn’t go well. After all, you’re pitching to someone who probably knows more than you do about the industry and they’ve seen countless other presentations similar to yours! You may have everything in place, but this person might not understand what makes your company different from everyone else’s — which means it’s their fault for not understanding rather than because there was something wrong with how things were presented during the meeting.

Be Concise

Keep It Short & Sweet: Less Is More

Don’t Worry About Being Perfect

First of all, one mistake many entrepreneurs make when presenting an investor deck is talking too much! No matter how good you are at talking, it’s important to remember that you’re not the only one in the room. You need to give investors time to digest what you’re saying, and they won’t be able to do that if you’re going on and on. Instead, try to be concise and get your point across as quickly as possible.

Another mistake is trying to cram too much information into your deck! This will only confuse investors and make them less likely to invest in your company. Keep things short and sweet; less is more.

Finally, don’t worry about being perfect when presenting your investor deck! This isn’t a test — it’s an opportunity for you to share your vision with someone who might be able to help make it a reality. So don’t be afraid to make mistakes, and remember that the most important thing is that you show investors what your company is all about.
