2. Show the risks: However, in it’s pith deck Uber never clearly showed it’s business model because it was dynamic. But, they showed the possible outcomes of a startup and where the risk lies. The fact that your company also assess the risk is a plus for investors.

Tinder’s pitch deck is of the time when it was called “Matchbox”, tagine: ‘The Flirting Game’.
However, Tinder presented it’s pitch deck in an amazing way. Short and to the point, that’s what investors call it.
- Tinder had built a story charactering a guy who spots the perfect girl but can’t go talk to her.
- Their story conveyed how the app would work.
- They also concluded by telling their main sources of revenue so that it sounds like they know what they’re doing.
