For every 1,000 startups there is 1 venture capitalist. We don’t see startup pitch decks often, so unsurprisingly, there are even fewer venture capital pitch decks around public. Yes, VCs have to raise money too from LPs (limited partners)!
It takes up to 2 years to raise a venture capital fund, so if you thought startup raising was hard, think again.
There are very few venture capital pitch decks around, but I know you’re interested in seeing what they look like out of morbid interest, or perhaps you are raising yourself?
This is a collection of all the decks that are publicly available, or a VC hasn’t confided in me to date (As usual, I’ll never share anything confided in confidence). There are a mix of VC, accelerators and fund of funds. It doesn’t make sense to split them into multiple blogs given the paucity of them.
It’s not as comprehensive as the startup pitch deck collection (which has taken 3 years to date to get to 90), but it’s a start.
If you have a VC deck to share, please ping me. If you’re reading this you know you could help others if you shared too.
Here is an interesting podcast on raising a fund.
