Pitch Learning Program: Basics

Before you watch the videos about basic pitch deck components, download the slide deck template. You will modify this PowerPoint template as you progress through the Pitch Learning Program. You don't have to use this template if you are working in a different program or already have one you like.

Submit your info below and you'll receive an email with the template.

The next module, Pitch Deck Sections, goes in depth into each content area of your deck. Getting a solid template in place before you start building your content will save you a lot of time and frustration.

You will need to enter the password you received to watch the videos. Please contact us if you have not received the password. Once you've watched this content you're ready for the next module, Pitch Deck Sections!

If you would like personalized help, please use the calendar below to schedule a 1:1 with Allison. Reasons to schedule a 1:1 can include:

  • Trouble defining a clear, central narrative.
  • Struggling to communicate how your solution directly addresses the problem you defined.
  • Want help uncovering a key message or emotional connection that will resonate with investors.
  • Coaching on how to confidently introduce yourself and command attention.
  • Cutting down on text and graphically supporting the "so what" of your slides.
  • Pitch practice with personalized, concrete, direct feedback.
  • PowerPoint mechanics and slide design.

I liked the honest feedback and how in-depth we went into understanding segments, competitive markets, and areas of focus. Every underrepresented founder should use this service!
