The Conversational Pitch1


Lately I have noticed an increase in entrepreneurs coming into USV (or videoing into USV) and talking to us about their business without the use of a deck. I don’t know what to make of that to be honest. But I like it for a bunch of reasons. It allows for more conversation and less presentation. It also shows that a founder or a team can talk about their business intelligently without the “crutch” of a deck. I am NOT recommending that anyone take this approach. I like to see our portfolio companies use decks when they raise rounds and we help them improve these decks as part of helping with the fundraise process. But as a receiver of pitches, I do like the unscripted conversation. It tells me a lot about the team. http://avc.com/2017/10/the-conversational-pitch/
