“I have seen literally thousands of companies trying to raise capital and know that a great pitch deck is critical. ”
Naval Ravikant, cofounder and CEO, AngelList
Founders I’ve worked with say…
“Tony has given my startup’s pitch deck incredibly thoughtful, insightful, and actionable advice. More than anyone else I have shared it with. If I was to share for feedback from one person to get the most constructive advice, I would go to Tony. Thank you for everything.”
Thomas Sobel, Founder & CEO, Brick
“There are two things I know for sure and that is that water is wet and Tony is a pitch deck EXPERT! I knew my pitch deck was missing something that would push us over the hump and I got some advice from Tony on the essentials of a great deck. That conversation shifted my perspective of how I looked at the deck. My perspective was “how can I present what my company is to the investor” and that perspective shifted to “This is a good investment and let me tell you why.” I learned things like this from Tony and about a month or so later I raised almost a half a million dollars. If you want to master the art of pitching Tony is the guy to learn from.”
Eugene Johnson, Founder & CEO, Zyrl
“This was by far one of the best experiences I have had working on a project with someone. I had Tony work on an investment pitch deck for my business in order to raise funds. What I enjoyed most about him was that he took the time to understand my business and asked tons and tons of questions to get a thorough understanding about the business. He really forced me to dig deep and challenged my thinking. The pitch deck turned out awesome and am confident that I will be able to raise my first round.”
Paul Hotze, Founder & CEO, Paris Texas Apparel
“Tony is one of the most proactive advisors I’ve ever worked with – he’s always anticipating needs and checking in with interesting research and ideas that help sharpen our ideas and focus. We don’t send out a pitch deck without getting his feedback first. He also includes a good dose of encouragement, which is incredibly valuable in the constant uphill battle of entrepreneurship.”
Emily Best, Founder & CEO, Seed&Spark
“I had the privilege of meeting Tony during the Women’s Startup Lab, as an advisor. Since then he has provided invaluable assistance perfecting my company’s Slide Deck and Investor pitch. The advantage Tony provides is ensuring you understand exactly why he is recommending the changes he does. Rather than marking up a presentation or slide deck and sending it back to you, Tony spends a tremendous amount of time going through every line with purpose and intention. His goal is to be certain his clients understand his recommendations and their rationale so they can approach future projects with the same precision.”
Laura Brookins Fleet, CEO & Co-Founder of SendaRide
About MeI started focusing on helping Founders with their fundraising process after my partners and I sold our last startup. I’d been advising several companies and going to pitch presentations and was surprised how often brilliant founders were making basic mistakes that derailed their presentations.
I started working with select Founders to improve their pitch decks, their presentations, and their funding strategies. It’s been a privilege to watch them successfully raise money and grow their businesses.
Today, I’m a mentor and advisor for companies, accelerators, and VC firms. I’m also on the Selection Committee for an angel group. Those roles give me unique insights around how to make your pitch engaging and effective.
