Secure your first investment round without breaking
a sweat with our end-to-end pre-seed funding
Most pitches from pre-seed founders will never generate investor interest. All these startups have brilliant ideas but fail to articulate them in a way that will resonate with investors. Instead, those brilliant ideas get buried in grave mistakes early founders make when pitching to investors.

Unattractive business model economics
No answer to the “Why invest now?” question
Poorly articulated solution and its value
The wrong presentation of the team experience
Weak, dull investment story

Pre-seed funding is one of the earliest venture capital funding stages when a startup comes to venture capitalists with a strong concept and a well-formed team of experts. Pre-seed startup funding can come after bootstrapping or initial angel investment rounds, as well as be the very first investment round for the startup.
The demands may vary across industries, but give or take, a pre-seed pitch deck content boils down to showing the following:
– A strong founding team with relevant experience
– An attractive market size and a formed ideal customer persona (ICP)
– A validated concept
– A convincing answer to the “Why now?” question
– Financial projections for the next 3-5 years
The main differences lie in the amount of funding, the type of investors, the expectations, and the amount of equity startups give away.
1. The amount of pre-seed funding ranges between tens and a few hundred thousand dollars, while seed funding can easily reach a few million dollars.
2. Pre-seed funding for startups more often falls on the shoulders of angel investors or incubators, while seed rounds almost always fall in the VC-backed category.
3. The equity percentage investors claim during a pre-seed stage varies from 20 to 30% (up to 40% in some cases), compared to an average of 10-25% during a seed stage.
4. During a seed round, investors already expect to see an MVP, first product-market fit signals, and, ideally, the formation of an initial customer base. For a pre-seed startup, the expectations boil down to having a validated concept, an ICP, and a sharp founding team.
A short early-stage pitch deck typically contains up to 15 slides, but the number of pages may vary depending on the purpose of the presentation. Some investors may ask for a brief, 2-slide teaser, while others may require a more detailed 15-20-page presentation.
The amount of time needed to create a pre-seed pitch deck depends on factors like the project’s complexity, the type of pitch deck needed (a teaser or a full one), and our current workload. On average, it takes two to three weeks to create the materials, but sometimes it can take only three days or the whole month.
