Company Name “One Line Mission Statement” Before you start presentation, introduce yourself and the general concept
The Problem Clearly define the problem – Who is this a problem for? – The problem(s) should be unserved by competition
Solution How are you solving the problem – tie the solution to the specific pain point you identified in the previous slide. This creates continuity in the story How does this solution

What will this $ help you accomplish?
