Hey everyone! Creating a pitch deck is not an easy task. If you’ve never done it before and you’re a first-time entrepreneur, it can be incredibly daunting. It was for me, at least. Hence, repo of decks that I often look at if I'm lacking in idea or direction. Generally, they are found in news site (leaks), on reddit, slide share, etc. As I started collecting them in my gdrive, people I met at networking events and my peers in Startups started asking me access to it. I quickly realised that it could be a beneficial tool for every entrepreneur who is fundraising or making their own pitch deck. Hence, I created a page with all of them indexed. Most of the currently available lists like this are not properly indexed and they don't update often (as they are blogposts and often forgotten after). Currently, I have 40 decks compiled which have collectively raised about $700 million. I plan to add 3 to 5 every week as I find more decks available publicly. If you want to opensource or share your deck as well, do email it to me at sk@dconstrct.com and I will be more than happy to add it =) Oh and don't forget to share with those friends that have been asking you help with their pitch decks too ✌🏼! Do let me know if you have any feedback!

@dconstrct @sathyvelu_kunashegaran forgive my ignorance, but do you by chance have any blog entry or support article about how it works etc?

@dconstrct @alek_lechick Hey there! What do you mean by how it works? The page itself or the decks?
Tom Flemming
It would be great to see an option to sort/filter them, for example by Angel, Seed, Series A, Series B, &c.

It's like Reddit except only investors can upvote your post to the frontpage.
Julien Lehuraux
Nice collection, good job! Would love a filter option too.

Fantastic resource you've created Sathyvelu! Are there plans to make documents/templates easily downloadable and customisable? I wonder if that could be a way to monetise?
Chad Gilhoi
Great resource and entertaining reading....thanks!
Vaclav Bedrich
Amazing work! Just noticed one thing – Crew wasn't acquired by Dribbble this year, it's the exact opposite. Crew acquired majority in Dribbble.

@vaclav_bedrich Thanks for the tip! Fixed and added more decks. It's now worth a total of $1.4billion!

Heads up, @sathyvelu_kunashegaran - the Square deck you have listed on there is an unofficial, unsolicited one from a few UC Berkeley students. Not a real deck. I wrote a post about discovering this showing verification from one of the student creators: https://medium.com/@bryanlanders/the-case-of-the-fake-square-pitch-deck-8315ab862f29 Check your sources to make sure you're not propagating fake decks. 😉

@sathyvelu_kunashegaran 👏 Nice work. Excited to see the collection grow!

@sathyvelu_kunashegaran @bryanlanders The Square deck is available on square.com/investors (scroll down a ways). Here's the link for it too: https://d1g145x70srn7h.cloudfront.net/documents/investor-relations/presentations/11-17-overview.pdf

Isn't this same as https://attach.io/startup-pitch-decks/?ref=producthunt. This was also shared in PH

@prashanth_iyer Hey mate - most of the currently available tools are not being updated with some made in 2016 and even 2015. The goal here is to keep the decks growing and include more as they surface.
Thomas Leitermann
@prashanth_iyer @sathyvelu_kunashegaran was about to share that as well... Maybe you can cooperate? I also like that they had some quotes from the CEOs next to it to add perspective...

@prashanth_iyer @thomasleiterman Yeap - as you guys can see here, I just updated and added more decks that will bring the total collective value to 1.4Billion.

@prashanth_iyer @thomasleiterman Wouldn't mind doing it, but it will make the site look too cluttered as now its designed to perform one task - to show decks.

Thanks for putting this together

Nice to see so many Latin American companies here. Many are featured in this post 'The Pitch Decks of 15 Latin American Startups Who Raised Over $1 Million': https://www.launchwaymedia.com/blog/2017/6/9/pitch-decks-latin-american-startups

Would love to see a collection focused on first time fundraising pitches.
Abel Cuskelly
nice work
Markus Stefanko
Nice! Maybe embed them and add a way to add (anon for starters) comments? Also breakdowns would be interesting - e.g. how they differ from the "standard" suggested format

Swweeet!

helped us with making our deck today :) Thanks!

This is awesome. I've been building a deck for over a month and would love it if you guys added some kind of forum to get feedback from people experienced in reviewing decks. The hardest part is getting feedback before you pitch, in my opinion.
