Tip 101: A final bonus. Credit for this one goes to Peter Adams at Rockies Ventures Club. Does your last slide have one of these variations?
Why? You can tell us verbally that you are pleased to be here and it’s Q&A time.
The last slide of your pitch will stay on the screen for perhaps 15 minutes. Put some useful content on there! Nothing too distracting, and nothing you haven’t already covered, but something!
One effective approach is simply to put up your “investment thesis” – the key 4-6 bullet points highlighting why we should invest.
One final bonus like this might just get that last vote to move to diligence. But be careful: having a typo on the screen for 15 minutes probably isn't the vote you want.
