Is Now the Right Time to Fundraise?

Every Entrepreneur Asks themselves this Question at some point in the life-stages of their company

What do I mean by "Life-Stages" of a company?

Great Question!

Successful companies typically go through 4-Life-Stages:

  • Idea Stage
  • Build Stage
  • Launch Stage
  • Growth Stage

Each of these four stages will place different financial demands on your company.

Many of you may be able to shoulder yourself through the Idea Stage through the use of savings, credit cards, personal loans, and loans from friends-and-family. 

Fewer of you will be able to do the same during the Build Stage.

Only a handful of you will be able to fund your company through these same methods during the Launch Stage.

Unless you or a family member is very wealthy, none of you will be able to fund your company using these methods during the Growth Stage. 

In my ground-breaking book "Angel Investors to Venture Capital - 10 Slides to Startup Funding Success - Entrepreneurs Guide to Startup Fundraising" - Available on Amazon, I teach Entrepreneurs how to create their Investor Pitch Deck to successfully raise a few tens of thousands up to hundreds of millions of dollars - SUCCESSFULLY!

In my upcoming book "Angel Investors to Venture Capital - Is Now the Right Time to Fund Raise? - Entrepreneurs Guide to Startup Fundraising" - I step the Entrepreneur back to the stage prior to building your Investor Pitch Deck. We will discuss the "If and When" of your decision process of fundraising for your business. We will dig into all of the options on how to best time your 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th fundraising - and also discuss ways to build a successful company "without" raising any outside monies.

Starting a business is not easy.

Raising money for your startup business is even harder.

Building Your Investor Pitch Deck "The Right Way" is neither Intuitive or Easy!

In my book Angel Investors to Venture Capital - 10 Slides To Startup Funding Success - Entrepreneurs Guide to Startup Fundraising, I crack open the secret code to the construction and delivery of the all-important Investor Pitch Deck. I take you Slide-by-Slide through the development and verbal delivery and teaches you what the Investor needs to learn about your Startup on what Kenneth refers to as the Investor "First-Date", 2nd Date and all the way through getting "Money in the Bank!"

You can read my book and follow its detailed directions on how to build your own Investor Pitch Deck. I wrote my book in such a detailed manner that building a successful, money raising Investor Pitch Deck has been done many, many times using only my book as a guide.

However, wouldn't it be so much easier, faster, less error-prone and even more educational if you were able to Build Your Investor Pitch Deck starting from a Master Template?

Wouldn't it be a much better use of your time and thought energy if you were able to focus on the "Content" and not the "Form" of creating your Investor Pitch Deck?

I've had so many people approach me asking if I could make their Investor Pitch Deck Creation Challenge a bit easier, that I decided to create the:

IdeaToGrowth Investor Pitch Deck
PowerPoint Template PowerPack #1

The IdeaToGrowth Investor Pitch Deck PowerPoint Template Power Pack #1 contains both a full example 10-Slide Investor Pitch Deck, built from a set of Master Slides for each of the 10-Slides my book recommends to be in every successful Investor Pitch Deck, which includes:

  • SLIDE 1 ― THE COVER SLIDE

  • SLIDE 2 ― THE PROBLEM SLIDE

  • SLIDE 3 ― THE MARKET SLIDE

  • SLIDE 4 ― THE SOLUTION SLIDE

  • SLIDE 5 ― THE TRACTION SLIDE

  • SLIDE 6 ― THE COMPETITION SLIDE

  • SLIDE 7 ― THE MONETIZATION SLIDE

  • SLIDE 8 ― THE FINANCIALS SLIDE

  • SLIDE 9 ― THE TEAM SLIDE

  • SLIDE 10 ― THE ASK SLIDE

You can use the 10-Slide Investor Pitch Deck "as-is" or swap out any individual slide using either an existing alternative master slide or a totally new master slide you can build easily from the template.

All of the slides and templates follow my "Best Practices" I teach in my book for:

  • Color Palette
  • Fonts
  • Font Size
  • Word Minimization Techniques
  • High Contrast
  • Readability
  • Best Use of Charts, Tables, Graphs, and Pie-Charts

Each IdeaToGrowth PowerPoint Investor Pitch Deck Template comes complete with one full set of slides and Master Slides for the 10-Slides I list herein and teach in my book, in a beautiful shade of blue. Specific shades of blue is a successful color recommended by many and used by some of the largest corporations in the world. It's what is often referred to as the "Go-To" color of choice. 

But wait - Did I hear you just whisper "I don't have a copy of PowerPoint". 

No Worries! I'll provide you with a video and links that will enable you to buy discounted versions of PowerPoint directly from Microsoft - no unknown middlemen or shady-looking companies. 

Remember - My goal is to "Help You Build Your Company Stronger!"

BONUS #1:

We know how important it is to look organized, efficient and competent when you are pitching. 

In the Q&A session, investors are going to ask you questions that you will want to quickly pop back to a previous slide before answering. 

How do you do it today?

Back - Back - Back... Back... There's the slide I want!

Every time you have to answer a question, you're tabbing back and forth through your 10-page slide deck to answer each question. 

You're wasting time and the questioner and you lose focus. Bad!

1-Click Hyperlink Buttons

We've added what we call "1-Click Hyperlink Buttons" to the PowerPoint Template. This is a row of 11 buttons which appear at the bottom of every PowerPoint slide.

With a single click, you can instantly navigate to any of the other 10 slides in your PowerPoint Deck.

This makes you as the presenter look more professional, skilled and polished!

Below is a snapshot of what the current slide #6 would look like:

This is an image which is located at the bottom of every PowerPoint slide which is a series of 11 round buttons that when clicked navigate instantly to the numbered page

Simple, but pretty awesome, right? This is an advanced PowerPoint skill that few experienced PowerPoint users seem to know about and even fewer used. In fact, outside of my Coaching Clients, I've never seen another Investor Pitch Deck include this powerful feature.

But when you buy IdeaToGrowth's Investor Pitch Deck PowerPoint Master Template Pack, you'll show up more experienced PowerPoint users. 

IdeaToGrowth Investor Pitch Deck
PowerPoint Template PowerPack #2

Love IdeaToGrowth Investor Pitch Deck PowerPoint Template Power Pack #1, but you need something more?

How about everything in Investor Pitch Deck PowerPoint Template Power Pack #1, plus:

  • 10 Total Color Palettes

Your company may want or need a different color palette that better speaks to your corporate mission. Colors are often as or more important than words or even pictures in creating a specific unspoken response from your audience. 

We understand that, so I've taken the beautiful blue color theme in PowerPack #1 and expanded it to 10 - Yes 10 - total color themes that should create the emotional connection that you want to make with your Investor audience when you pitch.

BONUS #2:

As another bonus, I'll include links to a video that will teach you how to "tweak" or totally change the color palette to match your specific needs. You will learn how to master the Master Slides in the PowerPoint to create any color that you desire - even as a total PowerPoint Novice!

IdeaToGrowth Investor Pitch Deck
PowerPoint Template All-In-One PowerPack #3

Love IdeaToGrowth Investor Pitch Deck PowerPoint Template Power Pack #2, but you need even more?

How about everything in Investor Pitch Deck PowerPoint Template Power Pack #1 and #2, plus:

  • 100+ Backup Slides (Save all your support Documents as in-the-PowerPoint slides
  • Just like the 10 Main Slides, all Backup slides are just 1 to 2 clicks away from any other backup slide
  • Search Box for finding any slide containing a keyword search term (John Smith, 2021 Finances, etc)

BACKUP SLIDES:

If you are like most of us startup folks when an investor asks you a specific question that to answer requires some additional backup documentation, you open up your file finder tool and start rummaging around for the file that contains the answers. Was it another PowerPoint file, or a Word file, or maybe a Google Docs or Sheets file? The clock is ticking and your potential investor starts to roll their eyes. 

What if instead, you copied, embedded or linked all of your backup information directly into your PowerPoint in a Backup Section?

Imagine the ability to 1-click to go from any of the 10 Main slides to the Backup Index, then 1 click to pick 1 of 10 backup main sections (corresponding to the 10 Main Slides), then a final click to open any backup reference material. Wouldn't that look much more professional and organized?

We think so - and so will your potential investors!

IT'S YOUR DECISION! 

So whether you're a First-Time Entrepreneur, a Serial Entrepreneur, a Friend-and-Family Investor or a Venture Capitalist, reading my book, and sharing it - No, Requiring My Book and Investor Pitch Deck PowerPoint Template - to be a "Must Read - Must Use" for your potential or existing investment companies I urge you to do!

Path 1:

You can read my book and follow its detailed directions on how to build your own Investor Pitch Deck. I wrote my book in such a detailed manner that building a successful, money raising Investor Pitch Deck has been done many, many times using only my book as a guide.

However, wouldn't it be so much easier, faster, less error-prone and even more educational if you were able to Build Your Investor Pitch Deck starting from a Master Template?

Path 2:

Buy my book, then buy Investor Pitch Deck PowerPoint Power Pack #1, #2, or #3. Build your own Investor Pitch Deck using my book and PowerPoint templates. This is how the majority of my clients find success.

However, there is a third, and for some, a better option.

Wouldn't it be a much better use of your time and thought energy if you were able to focus on the "Content" and not the "Form" of creating your Investor Pitch Deck?

Frequently Asked Questions

This is the 1st and most common question I get asked about raising monies.

There are several reasons why every Entrepreneur should build an Investor Pitch Deck.

  1. As an Entrepreneur, it forces you to ask yourself some of the hard questions about your business that you may not know you should be asking yourself, or that you are avoiding addressing. You'll quickly identify any weaknesses in your business, hopefully before those weaknesses cause great harm.
  2. At some point, you are likely to either need outside monies to sustain or grow your business. The IdeaToGrowth Investor Pitch Deck addresses the key points any person, bank or family member is likely to ask prior to investing or loaning you and your company money. 
  3. My teams and I have been raising monies for over 30 years and we've had investors, bankers and family members tell us the answers that they want, and need, to hear to be comfortable lending to, or investing in, a person or their company.
