The Sequoia Capital Pitch Deck Template was crafted by the venture capital firm Sequoia Capital, which needs no introduction. As they put it, Sequoia Capital is "fortunate to have been the first investor in legendary companies like Google, Yahoo!, LinkedIn, YouTube, and WhatsApp". They created this pitch deck template and suggest entrepreneurs use it as a base to prepare their pitch deck for presentations.

Considering the experience Sequoia Capital has with startups, it's easy to see how this deck template is filled with good practices and covers most areas a startup should focus on when building their deck.

You can find the original Sequoia Capital Pitch Deck Template inside our template, which has the following structure:

Company Purpose. Here you should present your company is as little words as possible.

Problem. What problems does your company solve?

Solution. How does your company solve it?

Why Now? Explain why this is the perfect time for your company to gain traction.

Market Size. What is the total addressable market for the problem you solve? Investors usually look for business that have the potential to become very big and bring a large return on their investments.

Competition. Explain who your competitors are and how you differentiate from them.

Product. Explain exactly what your product is and how it's delivered.

Business Model. Explain how your company generates revenue.

Team. Investors invest primarily on people and not on companies. Show them who's behind your startup.

Financials. This is where you can show investors all relevant financial data of your company. Since the Sequoia Capital Pitch Deck Template is a online document, you can embed sheets, images and much more.
