Here’s the truth: we have never and will never share any of our client’s decks without their explicit written permission to do so. But if it will make you more comfortable, you are more than invited to send an NDA to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’d be happy to sign in.
If you used Figma, Google Slides, or another collaborative software, you have the option to upload a link and we will leave feedback right inside your presentation. If you send us a PDF/PPT of your deck, we will send you an email with bulleted feedback covering your overall deck and specific slides or elements.
Sam is co-founder at Design For Decks and will personally be roasting your deck; but his knowledge is drawn from the Design For Decks Team, experiences of founders and investors we work with, conversations with fundraising experts, and more. Pitch decks are not a perfect science, but our deck philosophy is gleaned from successful fundraising experiences and lessons learned from proven experts with winning track records then distilled so we give you actionable advice to significantly improve your pitch deck.
We are confident that our feedback will be helpful and actionable- no matter what stage of ready your deck is at. But, if you feel your deck is so perfect that our feedback is not bringing you any closer to a successful raise, then we will gladly refund your money. Please just let us know within 7 days of delivery.
We have done this numerous times, but generally speaking, this is not the case. If you select this option on our onboarding form, we will be happy to keep you in mind for any relevant opportunities. We will only connect you to investors or potential partners when we believe there is a strong potential for alignment and after receiving interest from both parties in us doing so. We do not take any fees, commissions, or otherwise for this service.
Our feedback is personalized to your pitch deck and needs. We will give both big picture and detailed feedback. We will provide feedback on structure, design, messaging, and more, depending on priority. Most importantly, we will provide you actionable feedback and in a manner you can consume it along with resources to help you bring your deck closer to perfection. We will provide feedback on various areas of improvement with a specific focus on key items that may prevent you from raising.
Nope! While we strongly recommend using software that is built for collaboration and allows you to keep a live version (i.e. not PowerPoint or Keynote), we will roast your deck in any format you send it.
If you give us 6 weeks to do due diligence, then we’d be happy to consider it ;-) In all honesty, your pitch deck is one key component of your raise. But the best pitch deck without an investable company behind it, will usually not result in a successful raise. We cannot guarantee investment but do guarantee your deck will be far better after instituting our feedback.
If your have finished your v1 and all your content is in place, then it would be a great time to get feedback. Getting feedback earlier in the process will help you save a lot of time, frustration, and energy in your coming iterations.
