Pitch deck shoot-out: Top tips and coaching under glass
Creating a pitch deck that tells a story is a fine art. Getting it right can mean the difference between sealing the deal on investment, and investors walking away.
Claire MacMillan is an ex criminal barrister turned pitch coach for startups. She is a storytelling specialist – working with founders to both create and deliver great pitch decks. She has recently returned to London after 4 years in San Francisco where she worked with 100’s of startups on their fund raises, from seed through series A, B, C, D. She works with multiple VCs including Accel, Octopus, Blumberg, EQT, and Bloomberg.
Claire joined us to give some practical advice on how to grab the attention and engage with investors by perfecting a pitch deck.
For the second half of the webinar Claire coached 4 entrepreneurs under glass, live. With just a few minutes per business Claire ran through the slides highlighting what works, and more importantly, what doesn’t. These ventures are from a range of sectors and stages in their fundraising journey. Claire is an absolute master, and it’s fascinating to see how she can transform the window into a business and capture the essence of what that business stands for.
