Love this question. Am sure others here have differing opinions. A few solid resources:

- High-level, from patio11: https://stripe.com/atlas/guides/pitching
- Much to be learned here in the actual look and effectiveness of the slides: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17XZGUX_9iM&ab_channel=YCombinator

Remember that most investors will just skim your deck. Your headers should tell the entire story and more than 10 slides is a waste. When presenting, more than 6 slides is probably a waste. TAM doesn't matter. Traction is the most important thing! Financial projections are fine, but pretty irrelevant if you're right at the beginning. They only become relevant for that Series A and beyond level funding.

Nice. What's the platform? Visited comspace.xyz -- looks like an index for Discord channels?

That's an exceedingly rare quality, being able to run multiple successful businesses at once, let alone one!

How are they faring now? What if 5 years from now they all fail, but one could've been successful with more focus and dedicated energy? How do you measure success for each of them? Interested to hear what all of your businesses are!

Why try to create 4 businesses at once? Which of them seems like it has the best shot of being successful? Why not just focus on that one, then get back to the others?

Oh this is great. How do you mean?

BASIC, Bill Gates! Had nothing built.

A testament to his skill as a storyteller and understander-of-pain points that he made an enormous sale on story alone. If you can do that, then you should and I think it's worth trying regardless.

Don't love the H1 at the top of the page. "Grow business... etc." Not specific enough.

Maybe "On demand street advertising" or "Buy Ads on cars. Monitor street traffic in real time."

Open up a deli shop, convince an investor to pay for my company to go public, go viral on social media as a memestock.
