Perfect pitch, a singer’s ability to produce a particular musical note without a reference tone, is a rare phenomenon – only 1-5 in 10,000 people have it. While your chances of creating a perfect pitch deck that spark the coveted VC interest aren’t that great, they aren’t exactly in your favor either.
Venture capital shattered records around the world in Q4 2021. The number of startups seeking funding grew 33% year-over-year, and the time investors spent looking at individual pitch decks fell to an all-time low: 2 minutes and 28 seconds† That is a decrease of 12% compared to the previous year.
When the competition for investor time and attention is so fierce, you need an eye-catching pitch deck. It’s the most powerful tool you have for convincing investors to schedule a meeting to learn more about you, your product, and your company.
The road to a perfect pitch deck is paved with countless revisions, and a source of constructive, expert feedback can be invaluable. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that Carlotta “Lotti” Siniscalco, a partner at Emergence Capital, will lead an interactive session called Break down deck Bee MovieUpdates early stage on April 14.
During this session, Siniscalco will dissect and critique the actual work-in-progress pitch decks submitted by members of the public. She exclaims which elements work and which don’t – and she’ll explain why on both counts.
Siniscalco is the first female partner at Emergence Capital and she earned that award for the extraordinary impact she has had on EC’s company, team and portfolio companies. She invests in early stage enterprise software companies and her portfolio includes Convex, High Alpha, Oyster, Talent Hack and Whistic.
Prior to joining Emergence, Siniscalco worked at Advent International – a large global private equity fund – as an investor in financial services and financial technology companies and also as an observer on the Transunion board.
Her early career, which began as an investment banker at Goldman Sachs, included a stint in the BizOps group at Nerdwallet and as an entry-level investor at Ribbit Capital, a fintech-focused VC.
A pitch deck has only one task: to hold meetings. It’s the starting point for everything you want next. Take this opportunity to watch pitch decks from an investor’s point of view† Join Lotti Siniscalco and learn the mission-critical dos and don’ts for building a perfect pitch deck.
