Join Forum Ventures Partner & COO Jonah Midanik as he provides a tutorial on how to craft a pitch deck that makes an impact on investors.

Dropbox’s secure document sharing and analytics company DocSend regularly tracks startup investment trends via analysis of pitch decks sent through the platform. According to their analysis from 2021, venture capitalist engagement with startup pitch decks reached an all-time high in Q4 and increased 44 percent across the full year.

This analysis underlines the vital role pitch decks play in fundraising. While in-person meetings remain popular, pitch decks today serve as both a calling card for startup founders and an efficient way for VCs to quickly sift through potential opportunities.

That’s why serial entrepreneur Jonah Midanik is passionate about giving entrepreneurs the tools necessary to create an effective pitch deck. As a partner and COO at Forum Ventures, he plays an active role in supporting Founders on their journey. Forum helps B2B SaaS companies go from startup to scale, with investment, an accelerator program focused on go-to-market strategy, and fundraising.

“Being able to support startup founders gives me a lot of satisfaction because I’ve been there,” Midanik says. “It’s a really lonely journey. You’re over-resourced. You’re underpaid. You’re overworked. It can be an incredibly isolating experience.”

On April 7, 2022, Midanik will be hosting a webinar for Founders Network members where he’ll provide a tutorial on how to craft a pitch deck that makes an impact on investors.

At his webinar, Midanik will also cover:

  • The value of an effective pitch deck
  • What VCs are looking for in your pitch deck
  • How to craft an engaging narrative
  • How to condense your message

 

About the Speaker:

Jonah Midanik has spent the last two decades in the Canadian startup ecosystem. He has successfully founded and run both bootstrapped and venture backed companies.

An engineer by trade, Serial Entreprenuer by choice, Jonah Midanik supports founders on their journey to building world class companies out of Canada – while occasionally still founding companies of his own.

Testimonials

If you don't have a cohort group in something like Founders Network that you can develop long-term relationships with and discuss the same topics that come up with people that you already know, you're probably missing out on something very important.

David Plonsky

The number one advantage is the law of compound interest. The longer you stay in a very high-quality network the strong and more authentic relationships you build.

Chaitanya Vaidya

We know each other's business and we know each other's struggles. Having a personal relationship with other founders that is completely confidential and completely authentic gives you a lot of great advice.

Doug Lessing

FN manages my network for me by connecting me with other founders in my specific industry sector. I've been able to explore business development opportunities, partnerships, etc.

Becky Splitt

We just saw the first Mexican unicorn come to life this same week which is a fantastic idea. Being part of the Founders Network makes a lot of sense. We see that the Mexico City chapter is growing substantially.

Max Linares

There's a lot of great stuff going on even now in San Francisco. I've found Founders Network has been a great resource for me and for all of the founders I know during these tough times.

Jarie Bolander

It allowed me to meet people who had done this before that had the experience. I was able to explain an issue very briefly and they were able to give me a very detailed response on how they addressed it.

Terence Finn

I've used the platform to discover advice, connections, resources, discounts, on important services, connections to investors, and practice on how to pitch. The kind of conversations you can't get anywhere else on youtube or google searches.

Alexandra Greenhill

I see Founders Network as one of those necessary resources in the Chicagoland area.

Jason Jacobsohn

The Black Founders initiative allows me to shape this program where we can inspire, engage, and support Black Founders.
