I always find that the best way to put together a piece of marketing / promotional material is to look around for great examples.
I work with a large number of companies that go on to raise investment. For my own personal interest, I have had a dig around to try and find investor slide decks prepared by some of the more successful/well known start ups.
Clearly there is more to raising investment than the quality of the slides, but it can be useful to see what seemed to do the trick…
Facebook – more of an early marketing tool, but still interesting
AirBnB – early on in their life
Foursquare – original investor slide deck from 2009
Dwolla – one of the more recent ones
Square – the mobile payment start up
Mint.com – online personal finance company
The following link is a collection of start up pitches which includes a few well known examples of pitches.
