More Information on Build a Business Success Secrets
Hello Friends. Welcome to the show. Today we are on part 15 of our master class on how to make a pitch deck for investors so you can raise money for your company. And we’re on your last slide slide 13. The summary slide and we’ll talk about exactly what to play on this slide. Here we go. Welcome to build the business success secrets.
The only podcast that provides straight talk for entrepreneurs, whether you’re an entrepreneur, starting with an idea or growing your business. This show is for you. We’ll teach you how to build a strong mindset, powerful body and profitable business so you can achieve success. And here’s your host Brandon. See white Slide 13, your summary slide and your last slide of your pitch deck for investors.
And here’s the magic formula for this slide. What you want to do is pick five or six Major data points from all the slides that you’ve presented so far and you want to put it up there with the title, a quick summary or logo. And then at the end of those bullet points put your contact information. What a lot of founders and entrepreneurs will do is they will have the last slide with their contact information and then they’ll talk what I have found from presenting and watching successful entrepreneurs who have gotten funded is they have a summary slide with the major points and you leave those points as your last slide as a reminder because in general this meeting will go about 50 minutes and you will have covered a lot Of material.
You have 12 other slides with tons of information on each one of them. What you want to bring people back to is the summary of your business and the most important points about it. If you have a ton of traction, if you have five million in sales and you’re going to seven million in sales, then put that up there and just put that up there, five million in sales going to seven million. Or if you’re a software company and your annual run rate is X and you’re going to why then put that up there. If you have an incredible team, put the logos of the team up there, whatever these major points are, put it up there because as you are giving this slide, you are closing. This is where your closing.
You’ve made your asking your last slide about how much funding you want or need and what you’re going to do with it. And now you’re summarizing to close it. Leave those points up there as a reminder. People will likely have taken notes and you want them not to be reviewing their notes, but looking at the screen and you and remembering all the great points about your business. So pick 56 I wouldn’t go to seven.
It will be too much for that slide. Remember you want 32 font type on your slide so that it’s not so small that someone’s looking at it with a magnifying glass and can’t read it. And if you’re thinking to yourself, well Brandon, I don’t know if I have five incredible points from the slide, but I have three. That’s okay too. But put a summary up there of these major points so that as you’re closing, someone can glance up there and say, oh that’s right.
They have a huge market and they’ve carved out this little niche that’s going to be hugely profitable for them or they’ve created this moat. That’s going to be super hard for anybody to get into. I want to be a part of that deal and that’s what you were setting up here on this side. Put this slide together and congratulations on making it this far. The next step for you is to practice practice, practice good luck and knock them dead. I’m rooting for you. Mm.
