Startup Investment Teaser Template

Attractive investors get on average 250+ investment proposals per month and more than 95% of these proposals are rejected. Don’t let this number scare you off, instead learn from it how important it is to prepare well before you start approaching investors.
Our startup investment teaser template is based on a proven structure which ensures that you’ll cover all the relevant topics and include all the essential information for investors.

Each template section is briefly explained in the guide and also includes sample text to get started quickly on your own investment teaser deck!

Pitch Deck vs. Investment Teaser

A classic pitch-deck is for presentation-mode. An investment proposal in the form of a teaser deck is for reading-mode.

When making your first impression via email, it is recommended to use this format because it follows a data-centred and proof-oriented style along with the main chapters investors are looking into.

Our teaser deck template covers all essential topics of the fundraising process: Markets & challenges, product and track record, company and team, vision for growth and financials and the investment opportunity.
