You’ve come up with an amazing idea. You’ve stacked up all your coding / photoshop skills and mocked an amazing prototype. Now it’s time to get things started with some seed money. The first destination for funding are the famous family, fools and friends. But as soon as you go beyond this initial pool of capital, you need to prepare a pitch for early stage business angels and early stage funds.
The first steps for your startup are clear: You have an idea, you are founding your company, you are building your product and you need a pitch deck. Why? As long as you want to raise capital or convince business partners to work with you, a pitch deck is essential. It gives an investor insight into your business. So most startups are doing it the same way – even huge companies like Facebook or Google started with a pitch deck.
