Do good BP pitch deck really work?

This is really not a question, but a good sharing post. "I was part of an incubator where we had to pitch weekly and the mentors and seasoned guest entrepreneurs would rip this deck to shreds every week and send me back to the drawing board to revise.

I was part of an incubator where we had to pitch weekly and the mentors and seasoned guest entrepreneurs would rip this deck to shreds every week and send me back to the drawing board to revise.

So what I'm sharing is about 8 weeks of revisions which helped me get my pitch to 4 minutes flat hitting all the major points investors expect to see. I'm not saying this is the perfect pitch or pitch deck but I think what is contained here has a solid structure that might be helpful to anyone doing this now.

I also am sharing a practice pitch video so you can see how I compliment the slides.

I'm not running this startup anymore and we weren't able to get enough traction following the initial pilots.

Honestly, it hurts to watch all this and think about the "failure" after going so far, but I thought this could be helpful to someone so might as well put it all to use :)

Thanks, for sharing. Been struggling with cutting down my slides.

And cliche, but there are no "failures", just learnings as I'm sure you know.
