HOW TO GUIDE

Title Slide

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

THE SLIDE EXPLAINED

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

So you are ready to start building your pitch deck? The first slide that every pitch deck starts with is your title or cover slide. Although it can decide your destiny, it is one of the most neglected slides in many decks.

Statistics say that you only have about 7 seconds to gain the investors' interest. Therefore, the title slides must be eye-catching and memorable. Additionally, you can use it to set the tone for the whole pitch.

The best examples of pitch deck title slides show the company logo, an inviting picture, and a descriptive title. Our tip is also to include your contact info so that everyone who sees the deck can quickly contact you if there is anything unclear or they want to meet with you. While not essential, we would also recommend including a date on your title slide as well, since this makes it easier to identify different versions of your pitch deck.
