The Building Blocks of Your Presentation
So, what makes a great story? A great story is one that engages the listener and pulls them in. It should have a strong hook, a substantial body, and relevant conclusion, with a clear message that you want to communicate. When crafting your slides, keep this in mind: what is the one thing you want your investors to remember after they leave your presentation?
Have a Solid Introduction
Begin by introducing yourself and your team. Then, give some background on your company and what you do. This is where you can start to tell your story and get into the meat of why you are asking for funding. What problem are you solving? How is your solution unique? Why now? Be sure to back up your claims with data!
Educate and Inform
Next, it’s time to talk about your product. What does it look like? How does it work? Why will people want to use it? Again, be sure to back up your claims with data!
Finally, you’ll want to discuss your business model and how you plan to make money. This is where you’ll need to do your homework and show that you understand the market you’re entering. How big is the opportunity? What are your assumptions? And most importantly, how does your business model fit into the overall market landscape?
By following these tips, you can craft a story that will engage your investors and leave them believing in your vision. So go out there and tell your story!
