Not everybody agrees with my argument that entrepreneurs should focus on their pitch decks, not on writing text-based business plans.
So, this morning I decided to get some more opinions. I surveyed over 50 experts, including venture capitalists from leading firms like Kleiner Perkins Caulfied & Byers, noted angel investors such as the backers of Method, and serial entrepreneurs like John Osher, creator of the Crest SpinBrush and the Gillette Mach3 Turbo Power razor.
The results? 90% of respondents said “focus on the presentation, not a text-based plan”.
