Has anyone built a successful pit deck?

Has anyone built a successful pit deck?

I'm at a point in my startup where I require investors, therefore, it's time for me to take my startup to the next level by building our first pitch deck. If anyone has experience in this please share, thank you.

thanks so much @matttharp I'll continue with the product and I'll get in touch with you for a discussion if you'll have the time. It's too early at this point

    @fahimmd Here is a great example of a Series A pitch deck used by Front https://medium.com/@collinmathilde/front-series-a-deck-f2e2775a419b

      This is a great model for someone with users and a certain amount of growth, but the bigger picture take-aways are clear:

      • emphasize metrics to show you are analyzing everything about your business. This is critical, even if it's early and you don't have tons of data.
      • Show proof - not just ideas. Acquisition channel proof, use of capital, low churn...etc.

          @kinderminder @fahimmd @matttharp Hey guys! Would love to ask a question about building MVP. We all that MVP starts from a few simple feature. What you expect from the MVP? Since it is simple and may be crappy, will it affect our feedback even if the idea works? In other word, at which point you can say "emmm this idea will work"

            i have problem building MVP 🤪, but i think its something which should be enough for someone to make value / save time / make money. And in same time have some return on you, either user feedback or early profit 💰

              Yes exactly! At least gaining some info. I have a friend who is going to go YC 2019S. He told me that profit is very very difficult in the early stage

                  @kinderminder Why you have a problem building MVP? I saw your current project (the API one). That is a pretty good idea

                    in terms of building it or getting early customers (selling it)

                        it's cause i like to explore and do more projects at once, and sometimes we build some prototype which have more features then its need for MVP, which are untested and not ready for public or at least mass usage

                          I said i have problem with MVP, cause I always want more. Same in life, if I need to run one circle, i will run two ... idk why, probably have built in hardwork, which doesn't end smart always
