Pitch Deck Guidelines

The goal of your pitch deck is to provide a quick overview of your business plan. These decks will be used to evaluate your venture, so it is best to tell a story while communicating how your company will be profitable.

Strong pitch decks typically aim for approximately 10 slides. Images, charts and videos are a great substitute for blocks of text, when appropriate. All pitch deck submissions will be evaluated according to the same scoring rubric.
