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 deck - 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. πŸ˜‚ 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 I love the idea. Would be awesome if you has a "Pitchdeck of the week" email. Would love to feature something like that on Commutekit.com.
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

@ryangum oh I hope with this proof I will be at last able to communication to my CEO what should and what shouldn't be in a deck! Sincerely - thank you!
