MedVentures Your business pitching templatesTell your story To help you go international, we invite you first to tell a good, short, clear, and easy to repeat story, the story of your exciting new start-up. These powerpoint slides are a guideline to help you convey the essence and energy of your project (not to explain in details or to disclose confidential information, this will be done later on if investors/partners are convinced!). The PowerPoint has to be personnalised: you should use your own words, your visual identity and your logo (including for the first page). These templates just provides you with the basic issues and guidelines. You may add new slides. The following 4-step process is proposed to help you pitch your executive summary: a) Begin with “the “base slide”, as if you had just one slide to convince us… b) Then describe your proposed solution and added value: what is the problem targeted? What is your solution? What are the market opportunities? For what impact (turnover, jobs …)? c) Then explain your organisation and your need to go international: what is your team and how it can become international ? What kind of strategic partnership(s) are your looking for? What is your go-to-market strategy? How do you plan to internationalise your activities? What are your needs in terms of funding, coaching or networking? d) End with the “ask” slide? Explain in few word what MedVentures might bring to your project. Good work !

Overview Describe your project in a concise statementGuidelines The first 30 seconds are key to capture attention. If you had to do your whole pitch in one slide, this is it ! The best solution to creating an efficient summary slide is to imagine that this is the only slide you might display. Please create the most compelling statement about your big idea. Work on a concise statement (one sentence) to summarise the unique solution or concept or project you have designed to deal with a big issue, problem or need. It should be direct, specific, practical: what unique benefit will you provide to what set of customers to address what particular need? You may also want to highlight the key assets of your company -a photo of the founders, some customer references, a process-, to drop the names of famous people supporting you (if you have a Nobel prize supporting your project for instance!) © Your entreprise © ANIMA Investment Network (All rights reserved) 2

Needs & opportunity What needs are you addressing? © Your entreprise 4Guidelines & some questions to address: You need to make it clear that there is an important need (current or emerging) that you are going to address, or a problem that you will solve, or a major opportunity you are going to exploit —why does this situation exist and persist, and why is it only now that it can be addressed ?
