Feel free to adapt it based on your needs, expertise, and audience. Good luck with your pitch! The Problem • What problem are you trying to solve? • Consider an anecdote from your customer(s) – who have you seen struggling to solve this problem? • How big a problem is this for a given individual? • What’s the right metric? (dollars lost, time wasted, lives lost, etc.) The Opportunity • How many people out there have this problem? • What is the cumulative amount of [insert metric here] lost because of this problem? • What are the economics of this problem? Translate the [metric] into dollars of opportunity to be had. The Solution • What does your customer in slide 1 do to solve this problem now? • What is your solution? (At a high level, the pitch isn’t the time for details) • How will your solution impact the metric identified in slide 1 for your customer? The Team • Why is your team the right one to solve this problem? • Include brief bios of each team member, focusing on their unique contributions/accomplishments. • Include photos for each of your team members. The Ask • What do you need to get from where you are to where you need to be? • How big is the round? • How much have you raised so far?
