Why a Pitch Deck?

The pitch deck is the quintessential tool for any business owner.

In this course, learn to communicate, in 10 slides or less, why you are better than the competition, and how your business can scale to the next level.  By forcing you to “boil down” your business into simple slides, you will:

  • Have a “go to” document to share with investors, partners, and clients
  • Narrate a masterful “why you exist” origin story to create intrigue
  • Answer the annoying “so what do you do” question in 5 seconds
  • Have a living, breathing document that tells your story on paper
  • Have a single record of your business’ achievements over time

Who Should Take This Course?

This course was developed for creative entrepreneurs:  designers, artists, editors, healers, spiritual practitioners, life coaches, writers, startup founders, creators, small business owners, and anyone with aspirations to launch their own business.  

We purposely break down and synthesize business concepts in an easy, accessible way.  Basic knowledge of digital technology, Excel, PowerPoint/Keynote is recommended, but not required.

About Your Instructor

Hi, I’m Mandy,

I’m passionate about creating a community of entrepreneurs, self-starters, and creative founders that are confident, empowered, and aligned with their true selves.  

As a serial startup founder, I’ve cumulatively helped raise over $2M for early stage startups, and have pitched to hundreds of investors, including one time on stage while I was 9 months pregnant!  At my first startup, I went through over 40 iterations of my pitch deck.  During a 3-month period, I met with over 20 advisors including venture capitalists, angel investors, entrepreneurial programs through NYU and Columbia, TechStars mentors, and other startup founders who “coached” me on creating the perfect deck.  

It is through this blood, sweat, and tears process that I learned the insider secrets on creating the perfect pitch deck.  After helping many friends, colleagues, and startup founders with their decks, I put together all my learnings in this awesome course for you.  

Thank you for letting me be your guide.

Love and Light,




This session will be scheduled for January 2017.  After you pre-register, you will receive an email with all information including a link to the live webinar.  All participants will have access to a private group where you can share your deck for feedback and ideas.
