EVERY LENGTH OF PITCH YOU'LL NEED
You don't just need one pitch deck, you need multiples. You'll find yourself pitching to different audiences across multiple platforms with various pitching times from 10 minutes to just 2 minutes. Stevie can help you create your pitch, and transform it into the different length versions you'll need to succeed.
A good pitch comes from the perfect fusion of relevant visual cues, verbal energy, and empathy with the audience. It's not just your idea, or the financial model, or the vision you have to change the world; but the way in which you deliver it that counts. Stevie will coach you to increase your energy and finesse your delivery.
"The quality of the PitchVest product and experience left us delighted and we would highly recommend Stevie to other startups/businesses."
Peter Tomich, CEO, Sustinent
Investors tell us that many of the pitches they see lack strategic thinking (a plan) and are poorly delivered. If that's the first impression your company makes, how can you expect investors to trust their money with you?
Most startups find they need several versions of their pitch deck for approaching different investment platforms including venture capitalists, incubators and accelerators. Each entity requests different lengths of pitches, and our strategy for success starts by creating a longer 20 slide reading deck, which can then be crafted into a 10 minute pitch, then a 5 minute pitch; culminating in a short, punchy 2 minute 'elevator pitch'.

"We are an ecosystem business and have been struggling to bring many of our complexities into a 20 slide deck. After having a number of tries ourselves, we were very skeptical about anyone external getting it to the point where we needed it. However, we took a leap of faith and have enlisted Stevie’s expertise in crafting a pitch deck for our capital raise and we weren’t disappointed. Stevie was very professional and thorough. She took the time to understand our business, went well beyond just a professional design, really going deep into research, ensuring that the right messaging is outlined. Her deep experience and pragmatic approach produced a deck that has been very well received by various VCs and potential investors. The quality of the product and experience left us delighted and we would highly recommend Stevie to other startups/businesses."
Peter Tomich, CEO, Sustinent
With a goal to raise initially $300-500k, PitchVest worked with the founder to create multiple pitch decks for different pitching occasions. A longer reading deck was sent to VCs whilst 10 and 5 minute pitch decks were presented at pitch competitions. Stevie provided pitch coaching to the founder to rehearse and improve his verbal pitch performance. The startup initially raised approx. $500k angel/seed from various sources. Since then multiple more investors, including VCs have come onboard. Total raised over last couple of years, approx. $1m.

Our client placed 2nd in the pitch competition and achieved her objectives of sourcing partners to help expand her franchise model. She has since gone on to win another major pitching competition.
“I wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU TO YOU! Recently we participated in a Social Impact Accelerator Program, powered by HSBC and we WON! I got SOOO many compliments on the pitch, you have no idea! You’ve been my secret weapon, and so I wanted to drop you a note to say how thankful and grateful I am!”
