Because I will help make sure you address every question that investors will need answered before they greenlight your investment. Because I have great testimonials from investors and clients. And because I have 7 exits under my belt including a $1B IPO (for which I developed the investor prospectus and investor roadshow deck) and 6 acquisitions, three of which I personally pitched, negotiated and closed.

"A pitch deck is the backdrop for telling your story: conveying your vision, your passion, the problem that you’re solving, your solution and how you’re going to build your company. Malcolm’s experience is all around telling that story, to a variety of audiences, but always in a compelling way."
Former Venture Partner, Trinity Ventures
"Malcolm gets my highest recommendation as a Pitch Deck Coach. His unique ability to recognize, understand and explain proper flow and structure from an investor's point of view is invaluable. Malcolm tactfully, but directly pointed out areas in our deck that needed to be considered in a different way, and proved to be right 100% of the time with his observations and suggestions."
Founder & CEO, Boon
"Malcolm understands the business and experience of being an entrepreneur. More important, he understands how to help entrepreneurs build the story that will move prospective investors, customers, partners and employees."
