Developing an effective pitch deck is not easy. At the same time, your 10-pager is a key step in attracting investment.

Leapfunder can help. In this session, we will show you how to build an effective 'conclusion chain' in a series of simple slides. That series of slides will be self-explanatory in case your deck is forwarded from one investor to another.

It's a group session. By reviewing each other's presentations every company can learn a lot. We will go through everyone's deck, as a group, one by one.

This online workshop is led by Tienko Rasker, Leapfunder's CEO. Register for the event here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/pitch-deck-clinic-online-workshop-tickets-84853778937?aff=SiliconCanals
