A step by step guide to using Pitch

Create and share your pitch with potential investors. 

 

With our Pitch product, you can easily create and share your investment pitch with investors and track their engagement in one convenient place. Here we will guide you through exactly how to create and share your Pitch.

Step 1 - Navigate to Pitch

Pitch is free to use for everyone. Simply navigate to Pitch on the navigation pane on the left to get started.

Step 2 - Create your Pitch

There are several sections within your Pitch that you can edit and add information to by clicking on the edit and pencil icon. These sections are as follows:

Company Profile

Here you can upload your company logo and basic information about your business, including - where you are located, the number of employees you have, a brief description of what the business does and your company’s social media handles.

In addition, you can choose a colour theme for your Pitch which provides you with some customisation.

Funding Round Target

Here you can set the details of your funding round, including the target amount you are looking to raise, your pre-money valuation, whether you are SEIS or EIS eligible and your target close date for the round.

The Pitch

Then we have the meat of the page, your actual Pitch. Here you can include a video, your pitch deck and a short elevator pitch.

Please note that in order to include a video, you must first upload the video to a Vimeo account and then copy and paste the Vimeo URL into the relevant Pitch video section.

Vision, Problem, Solution

We have included space here for you to highlight your vision for the business, the problem you are solving and your solution to that problem.

Vision: What is your company's vision? For example, Youtube's vision was to become the primary outlet of user-generated content on the internet and to allow anyone to upload, share and browse that content.

Problem: Think of the problem as a pain point in the lives of your customers. Rather than being some abstract problem that an investor may not be able to relate to, instead, connect it to the emotional pain of real people.

Solution: Now that you've established the problem, explain what your company is doing to solve it. If you can frame it as a pain point that the investors have experienced, and your solution is something they've been looking for, that's even better.

The Team

Here you can add the founders of the team, including their titles and a short bio. Don’t forget to add their social media handles, in particular their Linkedin profile.

Step 3 - Share your Pitch

Now that you have created your Pitch, it’s now time to share it with investors. Simply navigate to the top of the Pitch Page and make sure your Pitch visibility is set to public (if this is set to private, then no one will be able to access your Pitch page, even if you have previously shared the link with them).

When you set your Pitch to 'public', you will see a few different ways to share your Pitch. You can either copy the link and email/social post/WhatsApp it to a potential investor or click the Share button and share it directly from within the Seedlegals platform.

If you want to see what your Pitch will look like for an investor, click the View as investor button at the top.

Step 4 - Track engagement

When an investor views your Pitch, then can express interest in your investment opportunity by clicking the ‘I’m interested’ button on your Pitch page.

Once they have registered interest, their details will now appear in the Tracker tool, including their name, email and any message they have sent you.

You can add notes and set the status of the investor’s conversations by clicking the three dots on the right-hand side.
