Hey all, these decks helped us a ton when putting together our own so hope you find it useful. My favorite deck has to be the Youtube one - not because of the content of the deck but because of the story surrounding it: Firstly, in the press release I linked up on the page Chad Hurley (Youtube CEO at the time) uses Blockbuster as a positive analogy, "the equivalent of moving one Blockbuster store a day over the Internet". Different times. 😂 Secondly, the deck came out as part of a court case where Viacom & Paramount were suing Youtube for sharing copyrighted content. In the court documents, Sequoia (their investor) partner Roelof Botha is defending Youtube's vision of "user generated content". The documents are truly fascinating and worth a read as Roelof goes through their investment process from start to finish.

@ryangum I love seeing pitch decks like these, would love to see smaller companies ones too. I'd love there to be a post-mortem site to show what certain companies didnt get quite right and why they failed.

@ryangum That's awesome, thanks for sharing!!

@bentossell that's an interesting idea. It takes guts and humility to share failure, but the learnings can be equally as valuable - so I'd love to put something together on it in the future Ben.

@ryangum Thank you for doing this. I'm just about to begin working on the Pitch Deck for my startup. So, this showed up just in time. Awesome!

@bentossell @ryangum Very good point, indeed! Knowing what NOT to do is often more important than knowing what to do.

@ryangum Do you happen to know of a resource which has a list of Investors searchable by industry or startups? And also, some sample e-mails on how to reach out to target investors for that intro or meeting?

Ross Blankenship@rossblankenship · AngelKings.com, CEO and Partner
My favorite on this list: (1) Buffer (2) Front App (3) Crew (4) BuzzFeed (5) MixPanel As we see more and more pitches every day at Angel Kings, I'm most impressed with the startup pitch decks that identify problems, while keeping it simple. Buffer is a classic example of simple, clean product and identifiable problem. While Front App's aesthetics are hard to beat. Love this! Ross D. Blankenship CEO @ AngelKings.com

@gregoiregilbert we found these decks super helpful when doing our round, so I thought others would too. The bit I love is reading the quotes from the founders. When sharing their fundraising stories, most of them talk about how they struggled with either their deck, investors or the process. It's good to read about how they managed to get through it to the other side 📈 . That's why I included a few quotes - to highlight that they struggled just like everyone else, and give a bit of inspiration for anyone else trying to fundraise.

@ryangum @gregoiregilbert Perfect timing Ryan and super helpful. Thanks
