When communicating with investors in your fundraising funnel you will need to make sure you are telling a compelling story as to why they should invest in you.

Pitch decks are a powerful tool that can help you tell that story. Different investors will have different opinions about pitch decks. Some investors might want to receive them before the meeting, some might only want them sent via PDF or link, and some investors might not care if you have a pitch deck at all.

Through all of the noise one idea we have seen emerge is having a send away (or email deck) founders can share with investors before a meeting. Brett Brohl of Bread & Butter Ventures recommends a 4 or 5 slide deck that can be easily shared with potential investors.

While there is no prescriptive pitch deck template that will work for every startup, here is a 5 slide example email deck we have seen work well for founders (or check out the example deck directly in Visible here):
