Startup Pitch Deck Examples and Template

Alexander Jarvis has a solid post up titled Pitch Deck Collection from VC Funded Startups. With 40+ pitch decks, there are a number of excellent examples to review. I especially love seeing artifacts from the early days of major success stories like LinkedIn and Airbnb. Taking the Airbnb deck as a template, here are the slides:

  • Welcome
  • Problem
  • Solution
  • Market Validation
  • Market Size
  • Product
  • Business Model
  • Market Adoption
  • Competition
  • Competitive Advantages

Add in a Team and Summary slide and that’s a great format for entrepreneurs to copy. Pitch decks should tell a story and convince the potential investor that’s it worthwhile to spend more time on the opportunity.

What else? What are some other items you look for in a startup pitch deck?
