You need to raise some money for your awesome startup, only you need a pesky pitch deck to show venture capitalists (VC) and you don’t know what one looks like?
It’s not all that easy to get access to pitch decks, so I have done the work for you.
This blog is a collection of pitch decks that are available to view online. Some are exceptional (LinkedIn) and some I recommend just for a little inspiration.
I have also created a template you can download here: Template pitch deck which I recommend using.

This is the Seed VC pitch deck for AirBnB. It is fairly basic, but it gets the point across.
Whilst the full deck including the appendix is long, it really does a prettyu compelling job on many fronts. I personally enjoyed reading the thought in the appendix as was assuring there was a lot f consideration given to a rather huge task at hand. They adeptly preempt a lot of “why don’t you” questions too.
Decent deck to explain a fairly complicated fintech startup.
Everyone has heard of Foursquare, here’s the deck they used to get started.
This is the original pitch deck to First Round Capital which was funded to focus on generalised cloud services, before pivoting to focus on Adtech.
This is Youtube’s pitch deck to Sequoia which was released in a legal proceeding. Its is pretty basic with only 10 slides. In it I have also included 3 stats slides which were not in the original deck.
This is deck from Israeli mapping startup which raised $1m. Ben Lang shares some of his learnings here: http://benlang.me/the-deck-we-used-to-raise-1m/
