Description

Fundraising requires creating A Pitch Deck For Fintech Startups

So you need to raise funds and need to create a pitch deck?

A pitch deck is a brief presentation, often created using PowerPoint or Keynote used to provide your audience with a quick overview of your business plan. You will usually use your pitch deck during face-to-face or online meetings with potential investors, customers, partners, and co-founders.

 This could sound very overwhelming, but it doesn't need to be like that? How would it feel to be ready for the perfect pitch in less than two hours of study?

Learn from the founder of TopPitchDeck dot com how to create a pitch book to get the investment your startup deserves. Startup pitching is a topic of special importance when you need to fundraise and are doing pitching to investors.

Through this course we are going to learn how to create pitch decks for startups, with a focus on fintech companies. We will look at why you need a pitch presentation and what are the best practices to create one. We will look at the common mistakes and discuss some tips for writing a better pitch book. The main objective of pitch decks is to provide a good overview of a business that is looking for funding.
