    Thanks very much for the efforts to gather and consolidate these startup pitch decks for us


    Love to see more (different sizes)

    I love the Observations section. Impactful pitches don't need to be lengthy. Curious to know the average number of investors who actually funded the startup or the average number of investors per round is the same thing?

  • Pros: 

    Great insight into how these startups got funding!



    Some really interesting visibility into how some successful companies were able to get support for their ideas and how to present information (especially if you don't have experience making pitch decks).

Hey all, these decks helped us a ton when putting together our own so hope you find it useful. My favorite deck has to be the Youtube deck - not because of the content of the deck but because of the story surrounding it: Firstly, in the press release I linked up on the page Chad Hurley (Youtube CEO at the time) uses Blockbuster as a positive analogy, "the equivalent of moving one Blockbuster store a day over the Internet". Different times. 😂 Secondly, the deck came out as part of a court case where Viacom & Paramount were suing Youtube for sharing copyrighted content. In the court documents, Sequoia (their investor) partner Roelof Botha is defending Youtube's vision of "user generated content". The documents are truly fascinating and worth a read as Roelof goes through their investment process from start to finish.

@ryangum I love seeing pitch decks like these, would love to see smaller companies ones too. I'd love there to be a post-mortem site to show what certain companies didnt get quite right and why they failed.

@bentossell that's an interesting idea. It takes guts and humility to share failure, but the learnings can be equally as valuable - so I'd love to put something together on it in the future Ben.

My favorite on this list: (1) Buffer (2) Front App (3) Crew (4) BuzzFeed (5) MixPanel As we see more and more pitches every day at Angel Kings, I'm most impressed with the startup pitch decks that identify problems, while keeping it simple. Buffer is a classic example of simple, clean product and identifiable problem. While Front App's aesthetics are hard to beat. Love this! Ross D. Blankenship CEO @

@ryangum oh I hope with this proof I will be at last able to communication to my CEO what should and what shouldn't be in a deck! Sincerely - thank you!
