What Are Pitch Decks
First things first, let’s dive into what exactly a pitch deck is so you can understand why they are so important. A pitch deck is a 10-20 slide presentation that concisely presents the problem, the solution, and your businesses path to success. In simpler terms, this presentation you will present to potential investors will clearly state your business idea, the problems your business will solve and your brand’s mission.
