There are lots of posts, templates and resources out there on how to build your VC pitch, but few items on how investors actually assess these presentations. Obviously the two should be linked together very tightly. Your content should be designed to hit all the points investors are looking for.

A decent chunk of the inspiration for this comes from Sequoia Capital’s “elements of sustainable companies.”
