- Startups persuade investors to fund their ideas using pitch decks, or presentations that combine slideshows with storytelling.
- Business Insider regularly seeks out and publishes these decks to give readers an inside look at how successful companies persuaded investors to fund them.
- For the first time, these decks have been combined into a single, searchable library, which you can explore below.
- More than 150 decks show companies at different stages in their quests for funding. Some are from companies looking for late-stage funding as they neared an initial public offering. Others are from household names in their fledgling years.

Billions of dollars in venture capital flow every year to startups that can articulate their visions in a way that makes investors see dollar signs. Startups do this by creating pitch decks, or slideshows that meld imagery, hard data, and storytelling to help investors see how their visions could come alive.
For years, Business Insider has been publishing individual pitch decks to give readers an inside look at startups’ business strategies and how successful young companies showcased themselves to the investors who then decided to back them.
They have now been combined in a searchable database, which you can access below. New pitch decks will continue to be added.
This trove of more than 150 pitch decks tracked down by Business Insider reporters over the years covers startups at various stages of their quest for capital, from seed-stage fundraisings to later growth-stage funding rounds for companies seeking to go public. Some are from hot new companies that have just locked down millions. Some come from household names like Postmates when they were at the earliest stages of their existence.
