Pitch deck: Team slide
To give confidence to a potential investor the team slide is crucial for this. They will need to know exactly who the people asking for money are.
You should start by highlighting the key team members, what expertise they provide the business, and what experience they have had in the industry or similar fields. The more solid the team is, the better your chances to create a winning pitch.
Pitch deck: Competition slide
Another equally important slide is to highlight what your main competitors. Remember to do your diligence when designing this slide as investors will be looking for what the space offers currently. Also, everyone cops out and says that a competitor is Google. Instead really look into the market and identify key competitors.
Why are they competitors? How advanced are they? Why is your solution different?
