• Sanjay runs Startup Riot where, once a year, 50 companies pitch their deck in a single day. He has seen the whole range of pitches – good to bad.
  • He shared this 8 minute interview with The Startup Foundry

Some quick highlights:

  1. Don’t skip the “why” of your startup. Assume the crowd knows nothing about your startup.
  2. Keep it simple. Text is fine for a document, not a PowerPoint.
  3. You want to emotionally connect with the audience.
  4. People connect with stories, not facts and figures. Focus on your narrative.
