You will usually use your pitch deck during face-to-face or online meetings with potential investors, customers, partners, and co-founders.
PITCH DECK DO’S
- Tell a story and engage people emotionally
Everyone loves to hear stories, even the investors. So, tell an exciting story about your start-up.
• Limit each slide to expressing one idea
You want to stay your entire audience on an equivalentpage
• Prepare to make a great first impression
First impressions are powerful. Believe it. The first 2-3 minutes are the most important.
• Show the people behind your idea
Focus on a big, relevant accomplishment for every person during ateam that identifies that person as a winner.
• Keep a consistent look in presentation
Use the same font, size, color and capitalisation format across all slides of your investment pitch deck.
• Know your metrics better than anyone
Traction speaks louder than words.
PITCH DECK DONT’S
- Don’t use too many bullet points
Limit the bullets. Too many bullet points will kill the presentation.
• Don’t make it too long
Average entrepreneur pitch: 38 slides.
Average VC attention span/ cranial capacity: 10 slides.
Do the math.
• Don’t read word by word from your script
You will sound sort of a robot and miss the all- important eye contact with the audience.
• Don’t create a text- rich, picture- poor presentation
People cannot read and listen at an equivalent time. Great visual inspire and engage people emotionally.
• Don’t come unprepared
Try to anticipate the kinds of questions that might have and be prepared with answers.
• Don’t use small fonts
Always use a font large enough to be seen by all audience members. Use 32 to 44 point for titles and no smaller than 28 point for the text or bulleted items.

In the previous e-filing regime, the CA would separately upload 15CB. In the new e-filing regime, it is an integrated workflow. Taxpayer files 15CA and assigns to CA.

The taxpayer will then accept the 15CB, as prepared by the CA, in his worklist and download the same.
