Questions we’ve answered so far…
Q: There are so many highlights about my business that I don’t know how to package them concisely without missing out important information. Where do I draw the line to create FOMO?
A: Getting a complex proposition into a succinct pitch deck is a real challenge! It may be worth bouncing the ideas around with others to get alternative views on how you could present your information. A good pitch deck is almost always a result of an iterative approach which has been widely reviewed and discussed with others.
Generally, investors would rather see a longer / more verbose pitch deck in preference to a pitch deck which doesn’t show the full potential of your business so the adage ‘less is more’ isn’t necessarily appropriate here.
