THE SLIDE EXPLAINED

Why you should have a business model slide in your pitch deck.

Creating a business model slide in a pitch deck can be a difficult task if you have never created one before.
Because of this, we will explain to you with this article what content you have to include in your business model slide and how business model slides of successful startups look like.

Keep in mind that the primary function of your business model slide is to explain to investors how your company functions and how your business strategy is. After seeing and reading this slide, they should know how you are planning to create revenue for the company.

First, you should seriously consider creating a business model canvas. Just Google "business model canvas" and you will find a lot of useful results where you can download a BMC-template. Please fill it out; it will help you by the creation of your business model slide since you will have to think about the purpose of your business deeply.

Next, write down all the revenue streams you are planning to have (or already have). Break it down to all of your products and present how each of them will be priced. You can also add the different features of the products and how they determine.

The last step is to put all the information in your business model slide. Please have a look at the example business model slide below; they show you how you can design your slide.
