Should you include financials in a pre-seed startup pitch deck?
I received a cold email from Jaime asking some very good questions about what should go into a pre-revenue startup pitch deck?
Do you include financials? How long should it be? What about exit opportunities?
My general philosophy is that you should have at least 2 pitch decks – an email deck and a presentation deck. An email deck should be short (~5 slides) and the goal of this deck is to just use it to get meetings. It should have a nice overview of your business and present enough information to a would-be investor. A presentation deck is for an actual meeting and should be much longer.
I address all of these questions in this video – watch for all the details:
