The NFX Pitch Deck Library

The NFX Team · @nfx · Mar 2022

173,399 startups read our weekly essays.

As you think about your next fundraise, it’s critical to take a look inside an investor’s mind — to see what they see when they look at your startup.

After building hundreds of our own decks and seeing many thousands more, we have a clear understanding of what’s best-in-class and what’s not.

We’ve organized our insights for creating a world-class pitch deck into a library for Founders:
