VC Pitch Collection

Venture Capital Pitch Deck What VCs raised with to get capital to invest in startups

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)!pitch deck

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.

Decent deck. They proactively share their learnings. Some funny things if you know why include ‘founders fight for our pro-rata.’

Surge focus on energy investments out of Texas. This is the best deck available to date in my opinion, well, it’s the most detailed.

This fund was setup to invest in graduates of the Slingshot accelerator in Australia. It’s a pretty detailed deck but I think their investment thesis is flawed.

Need help with your deck?

I help emerging managers with their deck (I don’t promote this, people just reach out and ask). I’ve done 2x quant funds, 2x property funds and a handful of emerging manager (VC) decks.
It’s not about doing basic design stuff. I do the hard stuff like giving you a hard time on your investment thesis, figuring out your differentiation, portfolio planning strategy, pitch etc.
