The guide to pitch deck design: Win over investors with a more compelling deck

Data compiled with decks shared with VCs through DocSend indicates that a pitch deck will only get two minutes and 42 seconds of an investor's time. If you’re thinking that’s not a lot of time, data also shows that time is decreasing. While more time spent on a deck doesn’t necessarily correlate with more funding, there are ways to make sure your deck gets the thoughtful consideration it deserves. Superior design is one of those ways.

We spoke to several VCs who review hundreds of decks per year and poured their advice into our new Design Deck Guide—it’s everything you need to know to make your deck stand out.
