Mar 8, 2021

Mar 08, 2021—20 min read While you're pitching your business ideas, it is necessary to put your best foot forward. Whether you are an agency, a tech startup, or just a person with some random creative idea, having a professional-looking and well thought of pitch deck, gives you a leg up and makes you a step ahead in your niche. So, if you're looking for pitching investors to raise money for your company, it is very important to have a solid and creative pitch deck. There are certain mandatory features, that play a huge role in making a certain pitch deck more successful than others. Though a lot of best pitch decks have a basic outline but the ones that stand out the most, are the ones that are capable of gathering the reader's or the investor's attention quickly (preferably within 30 seconds of the read)! It is indispensable to know that a pitch deck might be the very first impression that an investor gets, on your business and it should look STELLAR! It is a prominent fundraising tool for any startup, but creating a pitch deck that can win an investment is pretty daunting at times. Remember, no investor will ever invest, thinking about your team or skills but what will make them invest in a promising and profitable idea, and convincing them for that is a very strenuous task! Fundraising information Though all these basic constituents are usually redundant, few companies have made a name for themselves, with the help of their best pitch decks of all time. List of Top 25 Companies Pitch Deck There are few examples of top companies pitch decks that stand out and are top in their domain. Facebook Facebook is one of the biggest companies that everyone is aware of today, but this billion-dollar company was once a startup. Facebook Back in 2004, when Facebook wasn't big in business, it was Mark Zuckerberg and his friend Eduardo Saverin, the co-founders of Facebook, looking for people to invest money in their growing company, just like any other entrepreneur. The success story of how they found one of the biggest company ever, is intriguing to everyone. But like any other small business, Eduardo did go to New York, to meet potential buyers and investors for Facebook's initial idea of advertising. Facebook's initial pitch deck was just a media kit, showcasing the company's value proposition, key metrics, and marketing services online. Their slide layout included cover, quote, product description, solution, market validation, vision, market Size, demographics, user engagement, growth metrics, services, and closing quotes. What was unique? The most unique feature of Facebook’s pitch deck was that as the Facebook.com wasn’t making revenue back then, the pitch deck was also not revenue traction, but what made it a success was, they showed solid numbers about the growth metrics, customer base, and user engagement. Airbnb Airbnb is a popular rental online marketplace company for vacations that helps people to find and list lodges, motels, hotels, and a lot more. Airbnb However, when it comes to startups, Airbnb is the one whose success story is looked up by a lot of entrepreneurs. Their pitch deck is a source of reference when it comes to top pitch decks of all time. But what made Airbnb's pitch deck differently? Airbnb’s pitch deck is a perfect example of how to convey a message using short and simple phrases. The intro or the cover page is what catches the eyes of the investor, at the beginning itself. Imagine, explaining something to a 7-year-old about the business, it sounds difficult to convey but to be precise, if you can't do that with your pitch deck, then that pitch deck is certainly not what investors are looking for. What was unique? Moz Series B The best pitch deck ever made for Moz series B fundraise was also called SEOMoz, with the help of which the company raised $18 million. Moz Moz is a popular tool for SEO, link building, keywords search, and analytical comparison as well. It provides all in one marketing solutions, that help any business to grow without any manual excessive work. The Moz pitch deck was made after 5 years of the company's existence. The pitch was somewhat on a lengthier side, but what perfectly was conveyed is the accurate details and in-depth idea of the company. What was unique? What was standing out in Moz's pitch deck was, as the company was already in business when the pitch was made, they could easily present the exact revenue rates, prices, average customer lifetime value, estimated revenue, cost of paid acquisition, etc. Buffer When talked about best SaaS pitch decks, Buffer hands down takes the top position. The pitch deck is an example of how basic and simple language can have a huge impact on your investor's mind. Buffer This Buffer pitch deck was used to raise $3.5 million in series-a. Buffer as a platform helps the users share the content for social media by scheduling the posts throughout the day. These social media sites can be Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or Pinterest. The pitch deck became popular due to Buffer's transparency. The owner decided to put that up to help the other startups to raise funds. What was unique? Quite similar to Facebook, Buffer's pitch deck was also based on numbers and facts. These numbers were the ones that were provided by the Buffer users only. They even showed their milestones and had a pretty transparent business model to gain the investor's attention. LinkedIn LinkedIn, founded in 2002 is one of the biggest platforms for business-oriented social media interaction. Through LinkedIn, one can easily showcase their professional skills, experience, interests, and milestones. With years passing, LinkedIn has become one of the favorite spots of recruiters and job seekers to grow a connection and be in a certain community that suits his or her niche. LinkedIn When talked about the LinkedIn pitch deck, the theme of the company is clearly personified, which makes the pitch unique and appealing. The pitch deck answers questions like: What is LinkedIn? How is it different? It clearly talks about the company's values, the values this network brings and how is it different than other social media networks. What was unique? The detailed answers to questions are what make this pitch unique. The pitch deck also used graphics and pie charts, combined called infographics to explain the message. This pitch deck uses an extensive analogy in order to tell its investors, WHAT LINKEDIN ACTUALLY IS? YouTube YouTube just like Facebook doesn't need any introduction. It is a vast platform of content creators that help in free video sharing. The platform was developed in 2005 and since then it is probably the most famous video-sharing platform in the world. With YouTube, one can easily share his or her content by creating a YouTube channel. The company was acquired by Google in 2006 for $1.6 billion. YouTube YouTube wanted to be the primary outlet for videos sharing and that was what portrayed in its pitch deck as well. What was unique?
