We show you how to build a stunning pitch deck for your business.
The financial slide is an absolute deep dive into the machine room of your company. But don't worry - if you did your homework and developed an excellent financial plan, it will be easy to create a great-looking slide.
The financial slide includes a balance sheet, the income, cash flow statements, and projections.
What does that mean? You get the planned revenue and expenses for the following years from your financial plan and show them off. Unless otherwise requested, three years looking forward will be enough. This information will help potential investors to understand how strong the growth of the company will be and how long your runway is (burn-rate).
If you are going to break even in the years to come, it is a great thing to add.
If you are beginning your journey as an entrepreneur, you can leave your financial slide out of the deck and use the traction slide instead.
A final word on financial plans; Don't be nervous or uncertain if you don't hit your plan accurately. There is almost no startup that ever hit them on point. Just make sure you are not miles away.
The best examples of financials slides give the investors a feeling of how much revenue you are going to generate over the next three to five years. Additionally, the expenses the startup is facing in those years are included as well.
This is the foundation of why you want to raise the amount of money you are rooting for. At the same time, it gives investors a glimpse of how much ROI they can expect by investing in your company.
