Milestones Slide

We show you how to build a stunning pitch deck for your business.

THE SLIDE EXPLAINED

Why you should have a milestones slide in your pitch deck

You won't find the milestone slide in most pitch decks, but it is a good idea to add it to the appendix or use it if you are still in the product development stage.

The milestone slide is a great way to show that you can get stuff done, but also to get attention about how you will use the invested funds for the next steps. It helps the investor to understand in which direction you are going and to get an idea of whether you will need additional funding or not.

In most of the pitch deck milestone slides, you will find information regarding the following topics.

  1. Product Development
  2. Marketing Strategy
  3. Product Launch
  4. Key Hirings
  5. Fundraising

Be aware that you will be measured by your milestones (slide) at some point in time. Due to this, make sure that the milestones you present have the highest priority for the next three, six, or twelve months.

LOOKING AT THE PROS

The key to creating an excellent milestone slide is choosing the right design. We recommend you to use a timeframe of your next steps to show your potential investors where the company is heading.

If you already have a sense of when the next fundings have to be raised, you should include this information. Investors love to see that you are willing to keep on growing.
