CorrioSPC

Corrio is a fantastic service that provides messaging services to prison inmates.  I created a pitch deck for Corrio which they presented to a well-known global investment community of accredited private equity angel investors.  Furthermore, they were invited to the road-show which will allow them to raise a subsequent seed round.  Members of the investment community provide early-stage capital in the range of $250K-$2m.

How to make a better pitch deck

better_or_worse

One of the key tasks for any startup is pitching your business.  Whether it be to potential investors, lenders, future partners, etc.  Conveying information compellingly is difficult so creating a narrative is helpful.  As with any narrative, stories are best told with pictures.

Presentations with bullet points and lots of text are ill-advised…and some very influential people agree.  Google CEO Sundar Pichai used only about 40 words over the course of 12 slides in his presentation at the company’s developers conference this year.  One researcher concludes that the average PowerPoint presentation contains 40 words per slide.  The slides in Sundar’s presentation mainly contained pictures and animations.  The slides with text were only used to succinctly described the image.

This is because it is difficult for the brain to do two things at once:  namely, read and listen.  However, looking and listening is much easier.

In practice, one doesn’t always have the opportunity to present in person (or even over the phone).  That is why it is important to have two versions.  The in-person (presentation) version, and the leave-behind version.  The leave-behind version has more text and information that you would normally speak to.  The in-person version is the modern low-text version that you would present live.  You get both for the price of one from me at extremely low prices.  Contact me and let’s craft a beautiful, highly, persuasive pitch deck for your business.

bizboards

Atlanta based, BizBoards improves the online marketplace for these key business activities by creating a simple affordable one-stop-shop.  As of now, customers are paying large fees to use an unattractive interface to find/advertise work, investments, business sales, and partnerships.  BizBoards streamlines this once difficult process with a sleek, effective, and powerful solution.

I prepared a business plan and pitch deck that allowed them to secure financing and attract team members for their launch.
