Frequently asked questions
I'm not a designer. Is Design For Decks for me? Absolutely! The Design For Decks masterclass endeavors to guide founders, marketers and other professionals without any prior design experience to build highly-compelling, winning pitch decks which get maximum leverage out of design.
Do I need to use specific pitch deck software? Nope! All principles taught in the masterclass can be applied in Pitch, Canva, PowerPoint, Keynote, Google Slides, etc., so that you can work in the environment most comfortable to you. We also help you understand the pros and cons of the various software options.
What will I learn in the masterclass? The masterclass covers four major themes, which are messaging, platform, design, and delivery. Each section contains dozens of actionable tips pulling from a variety of disciplines, including storytelling, psychology, and design, covering topics such as deck structure, slide types, layouts, colors, fonts, imagery, and consistency.

In addition, you will receive unlimited access to supplemental materials including winning slide templates for key slides, a detailed pitch checklist for preparation and presentation, recommended pitchdeck structures from top investors, and more.
How long is the training?
