“We are techies and selling doesn’t come naturally to us. We believe that data and our work should speak for itself. Unfortunately everything cannot be built overnight and as founders we need to articulate what the future holds to the world before it has happened. This is why it is called a pitch.”
Farooq Adam, the co-founder of O2O fashion platform Fynd suggested this definition when he first published company’s funding pitch deck in May 2016.
As Fynd gets added to the portfolio of Google-backed startups with its Series C round of funding, the founders have again reiterated their commitment and shared the latest pitch deck that made the global search giant invest in it.
As Harsh mentioned in his latest blog post, “This round was different and unique to us because of the type of investor that we are raising from.”
As Inc42 reported earlier, apart from Google, Fynd’s existing investors including Kae Capital, IIFL, Singularity Ventures, GrowX, Tracxn Labs, Venture Catalyst, Patni family office and HongKong based Axis Capital among other angel investors also participated in the Series C funding round.
Series C Pitch Deck: What You Can Learn From Fynd Here?
Fynd investor group for raising Series C funding included three types of institutional equity capital:
- Traditional VC/PE Funds
- Corporate Venture Funds
- Corporate Investment
“Among these structures, each of them have very different and distinct approaches, thesis and outcome expectations from an investment. Understanding the drivers of the above is key to communicating the story of your company — past, present and future. You will see this difference in approach when you compare our Series C pitch deck for a Corporate Investment with our previous one for Traditional VC/PE funds here,” added Harsh.
