Everything you need to know to craft a great startup pitch deck – Technology Flow

great pitch deck still

The crew at Technology Flow has written a lot about making awesome pitch decks over the years, and I figured it was time to put them all in one handy place.

Many of these articles are part of Technology Flow+ — Technology Flow’s premium subscription product. I’ve marked them below so you know which ones you need a subscription to read. Maybe I’m a little biased as a teenager, but I’d say it’s definitely worth subscribing to get access to all this content. (And we’re having a Labor Day sale right now!)

Along with all the pitching information with a Technology Flow+ subscription, you get access to a ton of in-depth analysis that will help you find investors, build a better company, and become a more successful entrepreneur.


Can you / can you raise money?


Before you start pitching


Individual slides, segmented

Some slides are trickier than others; I’ve created an annotation template that a few hundred startups have used to successfully raise money, but it turns out that even a good template has pitfalls and mistakes. Here are some articles we’ve written to help you crack some of the more challenging parts of the pitch.


During the pitch process


Pitch deck teardowns

If you look around on the web, you’ll find that it’s rare to find recent examples of pitch decks that have been successfully used to raise money. I’m trying to replace it with Technology Flow pitch deck teardowns.

This is a long-running series with pitch decks for companies of all different sizes and stages of fundraising. These teardowns include three things I like, three things I’d like to improve, the deck, and a bunch of general observations for you to take a closer look at the deck as a whole.

Here is a list of pitch deck teardowns to date:
