The monster list of startup pitch videos

So you got help and your pitch deck is perfect. You’re getting intros to some venture capitalists and now its time to meet in person and make the ‘pitch.’

Umm… How the hell do I pitch you wonder?

We have pulled together the largest collection of the best founder startup pitch videos on the internet. There are all demo day presentations, but there are still a lot of learnings for you.

Key learnings from the pitches on stage

  • Casual and relaxed: No one is stressed out and fidgeting. They are confident and getting their message across like a boss
  • Practiced: Even if people are ‘nervous’ and uncomfortable on stage, they have practised so much they get away with it
  • Simple words: Don’t use lots of big words and buzz words (Social, local, mobile: SoMoLo)
  • Focus on you: Slides are background, they aren’t the focal point. You are the star of the show!
  • Humour: Keep people attentive with humour. Nothing makes people reach for their phone faster than boredom.
  • Cover the key points: There is a reason founders are pitching, to ‘sell’ and get the money (“Ask”)
  • Stage deck is different to a pitch deck: When you are presenting on stage, less is far more. You want to have very large header text, large emotive images and maybe even a sense of humor. What you send to investors can be more detailed. You are meant to do the talking
  • Polished graphical presentation: There are short text statements, there aren’t endless bullet points. The quality of the graphics are also high
