Color.xxx Parody Startup Pitch Deck

This Color.xxx pitch deck was written in 2011 to parody the lunacy of some startups that were being funded around 2010.

People were aghast when in 2011 Color raised $41 million.

From Sequoia Capital, Bain Capital, and Silicon Valley Bank.

Pre-launch.

At the time that was the most money that Sequoia has ever invested in a pre-launch startup. Or, as the Color team put it, “That’s more than they gave Google.”

“Find someone. Take pictures together. Party. Play date. Lunch?” — Color Labs copy

“As far as I’m concerned, it’s official, we’re in a bubble.” — Jacques Mattheij

My favorite slide is the Cat with the bacon taped to it.

If you want a little giggle whilst reading all these “fun” pitch decks. Have a look.
