A well done executive summary cannot miss in your investor deck. What I prefer is a one page with all the main info summarized with an appealing design. Being really brief is the key: investors receive tons of docs from startups and they don’t want to read too much to understand what you do, so less is better. Also a good design is important because it can make your info more readable and keep your reader awake.

I have noticed tech teams have a hard time creating appealing executive summaries so, for the startups in my portfolio, I came up with a template having all the info I want to see. I used PowerPoint to create a basic design that teams could easy personalize (adapt colors, move elements,…). I’m happy to share it with anyone who needs it. Here is a preview.
