Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Updated June 16, 2014: For a copy of the 13 slides used in this video, download them here:

This video shares a proven investor pitch deck that will get you on the right track to presenting your opportunity to investors whether angel or VC. This model pitch deck can be delivered in 10 minutes or less, if there are no interruptions. It’s designed to grab investors’ interest and give them just enough information to generate lots of questions once you’ve finished your presentation.

There are two parts to How To Pitch To Investors With 13 Slides

Part 1 covers the “What?” These are the 13 Slides that you should have in your investor pitch deck. Also, you’ll hear tips on how to get the investor excited about your opportunity.

Once you know what 13 Slides to use, Part 2 (begins at time code time code 00:27:27) will show you How To Pitch the deck. This is where you will learn how to have an amazing opening that will wake your audience up and grab their attention, a solid middle that will tell them who you are and what you do and a powerful, lasting, and memorable close that will leave them wanting more. Part 2 gives you tips and techniques on how to package the information about your company, product or service and deliver a really compelling investor pitch.

After watching this video, you will clearly understand and know how NOT to sound the S.A.M.E. as other presenters. And, you’ll be able to effectively use the Columbo Close, a powerful attention-getting tool, as the last words the investor will hear from you.

The information contained in this video is the result of the last 12 years of delivering workshops and coaching real people looking to raise capital. It’s the same information I give out in the first coaching session along with a homework assignment. This is not a sales presentation to get you to hire me. This video contains only “solid nourishment” and no “empty calories” to waste your time or money.

Here are a few who used this model deck:
-Glue Networks raised $4.5 million Series A raised $9.2 million Series B
-Sim Ops Studios raised $3 million Series A
-Abulla received 6 calls from VC’s after a 7 minute presentation
-Zazingo went into due diligence after their first meeting with a VC

-Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation
-Startup America Partnership
-UP Global
-IDG/DEMO Conferences
-Citrix Startup Accelerator
-DLA Piper Venture Pipeline Group

presentation, great results, so thanks!!!

Mike Seifert says:

Great presentation and I will be using this info however, you did not go
back and explain the missed opportunity at the beginning. You said most
people miss a vital opportunity after the logo page. What was the missed
opportunity, what was not good about just introducing yourself? Please
verify, thank you sir. says:

Thanks for your time.

Hello, Nathan!
You video is very awesome!
I have a question:

until the release day.
I thought about showing the people´s feedback/interest curve as an
What do you think?

Where’s the pdf?

anthony nevels says:

Can barriers and entries be skipped? What would you suggest for a social
media start up? Which often times then not can be recreated with simple
coding. These things tend no to be patentable. Thanks

petergreen says:

Really nice Nathan. Do you suggest any software to make presentations? I´m
very interested in your opinion. Greetings from Spain

waraloga7x says:

This is all cool makes good sense but why does there have to be a problem?
Why does your idea/product have to solve a problem – I want to go in to
film production – I can’t find a valid ‘problem’ as such that I would be
solving by producing and distributing feature films -

Tim Reha says:

Nice video very informative!

INVESTyR says:

Great video. A tad long – but great content. Of the hundreds of pitches I
have seen, the most memorable are the ones that start out with a story –
the “Why” of what inspired them to build their company. Also, I always
remember the ones that took a risk to give memorable analogies. Remember
who your audience is! They see tons of investment opportunities – standout
and be memorable! ~Patrick @INVESTyR

Interesting Video.

Thanks,…Guy Kawasaki say’s to use the 10/20/30 rule. Ten slides – Twenty
minutes – Thirty font. Whatever works to get the money I guess would be the
one that works. Thanks again for your video.
