Creating a Pitch Deck for funding your startup

It’s been a while since our last post because we’ve been busy! We’re starting to move into a new phase of our startup, and one of the things we’ve been working on is our “pitch deck.” For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of justifying an idea enough that people will give you money for it, a pitch deck is a set of slides you use in conjunction with your presentation to let potential investors know about your business. Ideally, it encapsulates many different points into easy to digest information that really lets people know why investing in you is a good idea.

Because we know we’re not alone in startupland, we want to share the resources we’ve found useful in creating our pitch deck, so that anyone else who’s working on this phase of a startup can learn from our research. Listed below are some websites we’ve found helpful. In the comments, please let us know of any that you have used and liked, as well.
