Template for the perfect 5 minute Pitch

I have been working with/ mentoring some very interesting startups at ET Power of Ideas, helping them with their pitch and also working on raising funds for my startup.

Pitching is a magic, more than anything else, you have 3-5 minutes to convince  investors. Here’s the template for 3-5 minute pitch. You may want to use it, if that helps. 


Please note- team slide (the last one) has details of exec team- founders, advisors, investors. I usually begin the pitch with my/ my cofounders introduction.

  • Slide 1 (Pain/ Pleasure- Causes )
  • Slide 2 (Need/ Gap)
  • Slide 3 (Solution)
  • Slide 4 (Secret Sauce)
  • Slide 5 (Competition)
  • Slide 6 (Current User Traction)
  • Slide 7 (Success Stories/ Press)
  • Slide 8 (Business Model)
  • Slide 9 (Unit Economics)
  • Slide 10 (Revenue Traction)
  • Slide 11 (Market Sizing)
  • Slide 12 (Product/ Revenue Road Map)
  • Slide 13 (Fund Needed)
  • Slide 14 (Fund Deployment)
  • Slide 15 (Team)
Happy Pitching and All the best!!
