I’ve spent the morning immersing myself in the subject of VC pitches following a discussion I had yesterday with the founder of an Aussie startup based in our Melbourne office. The founder is in the process of raising money and debating the importance of creativity/design over business model/viability in his deck.
We spoke briefly about this and reached a general consensus: the traditional method of distributing a static PDF presentation had potentially become outdated. Considering the multitude of presentations that pass the eyes of investors, startups must pitch their business using eye-catching visuals, clever design and succinct information to forge memorable experiences for the investor.
Recently we’ve seen a new wave of cutting edge format for pitch decks that are hosted online using single page portfolio design themes. This format is not only dynamic and engaging, it creates a truly remarkable viewing experience for the user (investor).
We scoured the net for our pick of the top 5 pitch decks and presentations that are hosted online right now, take a look:
