Preparing an elevator pitch and using PowerPoint is something that most entrepreneurs need to face some day. Dr. Jeff Cornwall explained here how to make a powerpoint pitch with only 5 Slides for new business owners who need to make a pitch in front of a group of investors, venture capital firms (VC) or even angel investors. Aside that a pitch can be intimidating, the very first impressions matter a lot of an investor so making sure that the pitch and presentation is efficient enough is one of the things we need to worry about to win.
Jeff recommends (based on his experience for many years) that limiting your initial pitch to investors to no no more than ten Slides in the PPT presentation is good.
What Slides to include in a pitch PPT presentation?
Slide #1 – Who are you?
Slide #2 – What is the concept?
Slide #3 – What is the proof of concept?
Slide #4 – What is the growth potential for this business?
Slide #5 – What is the exit plan?
The goal is to keep the initial pitch clear and concise enough so you can share the message with the group of investors but do not overwhelming them or wasting their time and your own time.
