Should you include financials in a pre-seed startup pitch deck?

This post is by dunkhippo33 from Elizabeth Yin

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:
