DesignPitchDeck.com- We design, You Pitch
Moulik started interview introducing:
We are a comprehensive company with a team brimming with innovation and vibrance, who believes in making things happen. We love experimenting and taking on challenges. We prefer to have varied projects of, but not limited to Designing, Development, and Marketing.
How did you come up with the idea of your business?
Our story starts with a simple demand and supply – a client approached us with a project to reform their Pitch Deck as they were attempting to contest for the Hult Prize. We worked on improving the content flow and the overall theme and design of the pitch deck; our clients won the Hult Prize with a funding of 1 Million USD! We had a happy ending.
But like it is often said, ‘If you are good at something, keep it going.’
And that’s what we did.
Tell us more about your team and uniqueness of Human Resource Management culture
The founders of 3 Minds Digital are those of Design Pitch Deck as well. Moulik Jain, Shubhda Garg, and Harnish Shah, three bright-eyed individuals, brimming with enthusiasm and a strong passion for the work they do, decided that people with subpar pitch deck skills needed help and someone to boost them up.
The rest of the team is divided into Designing, Development and Social Media Marketing. Each individual takes responsibility for their own tasks, yet seamlessly melds with the rest of the team to get work done in synchronized clockwork, each person complementing the other.
What problems are your business solving?
Many startups approach their investors with boring pitch decks; content randomly placed on templates that are downloaded from the internet. The main issue with such pitch decks’ is that they lack the much required ‘’ personal touch’ – No customization of templates as per the brand colors, or icons that are brand specific, or even an adequate amount of images and infographics.
Share your Success Story
We designed a second Hult Prize winning pitch deck for another client in 2017. Apart from that, we have received a lot of positive feedback from our clients.
How does it work?
You give us your mundane presentation or content and we organise it beautifully on a well designed presentation. We are also great at creating the content from scratch, with a basic form filling procedure required from your end.
What is your target market?
Founders of startups, Businessmen.
What is your competitive advantage?
We did some research and realized there was a huge void in the market for people who needed help with the beautification or creation of their pitch decks. It is an untouched market with a tremendous potential for growth.
How much time did it take you from conceptualization of your business to actually launching it in the market?
It was actually a very organic process. The creation of the website was a mark that designpitchdeck.com had officially been launched.
How do you plan to market your product? What are your customer acquisition strategies?
The main challenge that we face is that people are unaware of the existence of such a service in the market. They do not know the benefits of hiring a professional team to design and beautify their pitch deck. The more beautiful a pitch deck, the better the chances that it stands out to the investor and makes them enthusiastic to go through it.
Angel investors receive around 35 pitch decks per day and VCs around 200. The chances that they will not look at the pitch at all if they are not visually appealing is 83%.
Our marketing strategy is to tie up with VCs to directly refer us to business plans from our clients and to conduct various events to raise awareness on investment decks.
What is the revenue model?
We provide a service that deals with the systematic designing or redesigning of pitch decks to make them more persuasive, organized and beautiful.
What kind of funding have you received?
Design Pitch Deck is financially supported by the parent company, 3 Minds Digital. We have received various offers for acquisition and funding, but decided that it was unrequited, as we are quite self-sufficient.
What do you want to achieve from this? What is your larger goal or vision?
Our aim is to be the pioneers who lead this product in the market and be the most trusted and preferred brand for pitch deck designing. We aspire to create an investor and mentor panel by which our clients can directly connect to investors for funding. Our goal for the near future is to help 500 companies acquire funding by the end of 2018 with a total of 100 Million USD of funds.
