Crunchbase Pitch Deck
Since its successful launch, Crunchbase has established itself as a go-to source for information and data about both private and public companies.
Crunchbase offers information such as investments and funding, background on founding members and individuals in leadership positions, mergers and acquisitions, business news, and industry trends. They separated from their parent company in 2015, and the brand continued to grow through a series of fundraising efforts. One of these pivotal junctures occurred in 2019 when the organization raised $30 million from six key investors led by OMERS Ventures. To achieve the remarkable investment, Crunchbase relied on a pitch deck.
Crunchbase’s 2019 pitch deck was already worthy in its own right, but we wanted to try our hand at another PowerPoint makeover.

A well-designed pitch deck template can seal the deal for the growth of your project or startup. Your goal is to grab the attention of potential investors and build excitement about your brand, the way Crunchbase’s presentation does, but also not get bogged down in too many details. Take a look at some of Slack’s slides to get a sense for how to strike that balance.
Quick tips for creating a successful pitch deck
Along with our Crunchbase pitch deck refresh, we’ve taken cues from other top startups who’ve raised money from angel investors and VCs with effective pitch decks. Here are some quick tips for customizing your own pitch deck template:
A pitch deck should be clear, compelling, and straightforward. About 10 to 20 slides should be enough to hit all the key points.
The overall layout of your slideshow is important, but each slide template also needs to make an impact. Capitalization, bolding key messages, and adding color will create attention on each individual slide.
Your presentation should support what you’re saying, not distract from it. Keep your design and text simple.
Charts, funnels, graphs, and images all add to the way your presentation is received. Visual aids make slides memorable and draw notice from your audience to important components.
