Investor Deck & Business Pitch Deck Strategy

In our 30 years of experience, we have gone through hundreds of AgriTech and FoodTech pitch decks. We have put together some expert tips and common mistakes to help you structure your pitch deck which will, in essence, be visual support to your pitch. 

Deck length

A rule of thumb is to have a maximum of 10-15 slides for your main pitch deck, excluding your appendix. 

Keep it legible

Make it simple, easy to read and obvious. As much as your pitch deck should be educational and include data and information, it should all be portrayed in a concise manner.


Start with a simple font. Use large type, bold text and make sure there's good contrast from the background. Titles should describe what your slide is about.


If you include diagrams, the paths to the ideas on your slides should be straight and quick. You don't want investors to get stuck in a maze.


If you include graphs, it's best to have only one y-axe to avoid confusion. Your axes should be labelled clearly, using real numbers.

Number fluctuations

Explain anomalies in your numbers.


Don't show hypothetically projected revenue that is not based on real data. 

Don't show cumulative data.

Don't include what is not meaningful to your business.

Include screenshots on your slides.
