THE SLIDE EXPLAINED

Why you should have the team slide in your pitch deck.

Who will be part of the rockstar team that is going to build the next moonshot for the investor? You've got to show them!

The primary purpose of your team slide is to built confidence in your team and your skills to make the venture a huge success. It is common to give a short bio for each of your key team members, including education, relevant experience, and any accomplishments.

Always ask yourself: What previous things in your team members' lives could be helpful for your business challenges. Think of it as a proven track record.

Be aware that all of this information should be short because the purpose of the pitch deck is to get the attention of the investor and not to tell any life stories (Pro Tip: Add a more extended version of your team slide to the appendix).

The team slide can also be used to tell any story that the founders have together or speak about a shared passion or purpose.
